September 11 IN MEMORY OF OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS

This photograph was taken at a Candlelight Vigil right after 9/11.

I was urged by my partner Joe DiMaggio to send this photo into our agent. I first hesitated doing so because I figured there were so many photos of this tragic event who needed another. When he finally convinced me to just do it, I was very surprised to receive this note back.

Joanne–

Marcel Saba, VP of Editorial Photography, passed along the great photograph

that you’ve shown to Leslie Hughes in some recent correspondence. I must say that from all the pictures I’ve edited of this tragedy, this quickly rises to the top. As Acting Director of Corbis Sygma USA, I am writing to ask if you would let us syndicate this photograph worldwide. 

Again, great work; I’m glad I got to see it!

Sincerely,

Charlie Borst
