Satan in the Smoke appears just seconds after the second plane struck the south tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
The photograph was taken by Mark D Phillips from the rooftop of his home in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, NY, just three miles from ground zero. It was the first image I took from my roof at 9:03am on that horrible day.
Satan in the Smoke was one of the first electronic viral images. Sent over email before social media, the image appeared in inboxes across the country. My website crashed from the million hits it received.
The image was vilified as fake by major news organizations, I had to approach Olympus Cameras and have them verify the authenticity of the digital capture. I have never sold the image to the public until now.
