Tourist guy – 2011

Greatest Photos Ever

The “tourist guy” was an Internet phenomenon that featured a fake photograph of a tourist who appeared in many manipulated pictures after the September 11, 2001 attacks. Soon after 9/11 an image showing a tourist while an airliner was about to hit the building beneath him circulated on the Internet. It was claimed that the picture came from a camera found in the debris at Ground Zero. The picture purported to be one taken mere moments before the attacks on the World Trade Center began. The picture won a best 9/11 Photoshopped picture contest.
