Two Towers: Photos by Jeremy Ackman
Photos of divers inspired by the September 11 terror attacks in which people trapped in the upper floors decided to end their lives by jumping off the burning buildings.
I was a senior in high school during the attacks watching it on TV in class. This had a big impact on my life since I knew before that day I was joining the National Guard to pay for college. When the attacks happened I know then that I was going to war even before signing up. I ended up in Iraq a few years later. I'm now out of the army. Sometimes though when I'm walking around I think about the people in the tower. I like to believe that when those people jumped it was getting to making a choice, controlling their last moments. As they fell, they felt the fresh air, felt free from the chaos. Terror attacks can be about power and control. I think these people took a little back.
