Photographer Of Grisly NYC Subway Death Defends Himself
The cover of yesterday's New York Post has become a collectible for sickos.
It features the photo of Ki Suk Han hanging on, moments before he was killed by an oncoming Q train.
It's sort of like Penelope Pitstop, but for real.
And the photographer wants to tell his own side of the story.
He says he couldn't have saved the guy.
It wasn't possible--though photographing him obviously was.
He also prefers people to say he "licensed" the photo rather than "sold" it.
In any case, he's right.
Documenting harsh realities is what people do these days; it's accessible and important.
And what you do with that documentation is up to each and every citizen.
