The New York Times' "Plane Theory" Best of Photojournalism 2002 Entry

A completely new resource for me is a six-year-old web effort at awarding honors for taking pictures on September 11, 2001, and its aftermath---The Best of Photojournalism 2002. The Internet Archive has never heard of these pages before, so I don't know when they went up online. Almost the whole batch is unfamiliar to me (and where they are familiar, they are all part of the same entry,) which leads me to think they are of recent public vintage.

A beautiful three-image entry by the New York Times, depicting the so-called plane theory of the attacks, and if anything does, this sequence should have borne a photographer's name.
