The image, captured by Thomas E. Franklin, a staff photographer for The Record in Bergen County, N.J., was quickly picked up by national newspapers, magazines and television networks.
The three spotted a flagpole about 20 feet above street level and climbed up to raise the flag as Franklin captured the image from 100 feet away at about 5 p.m. on the afternoon of 9/11.
"They didn't know that the picture was taken," Franklin told in a recent interview.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency raised around $10 million through the stamp, Franklin said.
Franklin, the photographer who captured the image, still works for The Record in New Jersey. He is now the paper's multimedia editor and video producer. Married with a son, he also teaches photojournalism at Ramapo College in New Jersey.
Most days, Franklin, 45, shoots brief video reports for the Web, but he also works on in-depth pieces. His latest project focuses on9/11 as seen and heard by the photographers who covered the events that day. Franklin, who interviewed both professional and amateur photographers who captured iconic images, said he aimed to release the 13-minute-long documentary before Sept. 11. "There's real value in retelling what happened," he said.
On the day news broke of Osama bin Laden's killing, Franklin went to ground zero and produced a video for The Record, saying that he didn't think it would take almost ten years to track down bin Laden.
"I felt a sense of relief when I heard the news that bin Laden was dead," he said.
Franklin said he'll attend the 10th anniversary ceremony as a photojournalist, covering the event for The Record.
"The events of Sept. 11 will never be forgotten," he said.
