Humbled to find that one of the UK’s national newspapers, the Daily Mirror, has included one of my images in a feature called “What happened to the people pictured in the world’s most iconic photographs”.
The photograph is one from the London bombings on July 7th, 2005.
Paul Dadge leads Davinia Turrell (now Davinia Douglass) away from Edgware Road tube station after a suicide bomb attack in which she suffered burn injuries, resulting in the need for a face mask. The bomber blew himself up on a train at the station, killing seven passengers – one of four coordinated attacks on London’s public transport system during the morning rush hour. The bombs exploded within 50 seconds of each other on London Underground trains, and the fourth bomb occurred on a bus less than an hour later. The explosions resulted in some 56 deaths (including those of the four bombers) and 700 injuries. Surveillance video footage showed that the four men had been working together. Intelligence services have claimed links between the bombers and al-Qaeda. Edgware Road underground station, London, United Kingdom. July 07, 2005. Copyright Photo: ©Edmond Terakopian
