Collection of first images that were published online of the plane crash at Schiphol, Wednesday 25 February 2009.
Including first posts on Twitter and images on Twitpic. Starts with the amateur photos and ends with the first professional pictures.
The presentation shows how images of amateurs were used by all major media in the first hour after the crash. However, at the moment the first press photographers arrived on the scene, their photos were published from that point onward. The amateurs photos were then removed from all major news sites.
This presentation was presented during a lecture three hours after the crash happened.
