The 9/11 Phonytographers

The most common objection people have to our research: "Too many people would have been involved to pull off such a massive hoax." Well, with trillions of taxpayers' dollars at hand, this operation could certainly afford contracting many individuals (under a gag order and on a need-to-know basis). Meet the real - and unreal - persons, companies & entities assigned to carry out this gigantic, media & military-assisted psyop.

ALLAN TANNENBAUM http://www.sohoblues.com/september11.html

ImageImageImage

Let's get to know a little more about Allan Tannenbaum, ultra-active 9/11 phonytographer credited with all sorts of 9/11 images, including "WTC jumpers" and whatnot.
ABOUT ALLAN TANNENBAUM : http://www.nfagallery.com/photographers ... 56&unid=29

"His first really big international stories were the volcanic disaster in Colombia that buried alive over 20,000 people, and unrest in South Africa. Since then he has covered, among many international news events, the Philippine Revolution, the Karenni rebellion in Burma, the Palestinian Intifada, violent demonstrations in Korea, the siege of Kabul, German reunification, the situation in Northern Ireland, Operation Desert Storm in Kuwait and Iraq, the Gulf Crisis in 1998 from the nuclear carrier U.S.S. George Washington in the Persian Gulf, and the Rwandan refugee crisis."
(...)
"He has covered numerous political campaigns and nominating conventions and has covered news stories in the U.S. such as the Oklahoma City bombing and the Columbine massacre (...) His photographs have graced the covers of TIME three times, and NEWSWEEK five times."

****************
"Ironically, Tannenbaum got the biggest and most dangerous story of his carreer just six blocks from his home – the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. Tannenbaum photographed the explosion of the second plane and Ground Zero between tower collapses. He was covered in dust and debris when the first tower collapsed, but stayed at the site to keep working. His photographs of this terrible event have been published all over the world and have been in photography exhibitions as well. For more than two years, he has been working on a photo story titled 9/11: Still Killing – The Hidden Victims. This story consists of portraits of many of the first responders, recovery workers, downtown residents, and workers who have been getting sick and dying as a result of toxic exposures on 9/11 and afterwards."



**************************************

On his website, we find this image credited to him:
Image

Tannenbaum is also credited with one of this quartet (top left) of images depicting (almost) the same scenery...

***************************************


Tannenbaum is also the author of a book titled "New York in the 70's" - with a preface by Yoko Ono...

GREGG BROWN - "volunteer scammer"

Holy crap - this has to be one of the silliest phonytographer tales of 9/11. At this stage, it should now be perfectly clear to regular Cluesforum members & readers that, since the total control of 9/11 imagery (at every level - and by every imaginable means) was an absolutely crucial department of the Grand Hoax. Since all the official (or perhaps I should say, "all the existing") imagery to come out of that day - and the successive Ground Zero imagery - was tightly managed by a central photographic "Fakery Factory", the sources (i.e. the alleged authors) of this imagery had to be made up as well.

Here is yet another silly tale for public consumption I bumped into today - a fable spiced-up with sordid and 'scandalous disclosures'... courtesy of (brace yourselves) none other than the Daily News investigative dept.! :rolleyes:

Image
http://www.womanaroundtown.com/sections ... bering-911

So, this is Gregg Brown. As the story goes, he was a wedding photographer who received a call from FEMA - out of the blue - on September 15, 2001, asking him if he also did aerial photography. He promptly replied "Sure!"

From The New York Times, November 15, 2001 :
"Above Ground Zero With a Camera and a Bluff"

“Do you do aerial photography?” the caller asked.

“Sure,” Mr. Brown said. “If you have a plane or a helicopter.”

“We have planes and helicopters,” the caller replied.

http://lens.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/11/1 ... d-a-bluff/


So right from the start, this tall tale is as ludicrous as it can get: we are asked to believe in the inane notion that FEMA would look up the Yellow Pages to seek for an aerial (wedding) photographer to put in their helicopter and shoot images of Ground Zero. Good grief.

Now, in that NYT article, our Gregg is quoted as saying (when accepting the job) that "he cut his rate and promised to be available around the clock". Further on, Gregg is quoted as saying : "I was gung-ho about helping out. I thought Id be able to do it. And I was."

Helping out? Doesn't that sound like Gregg was, in effect, volunteering for the job?
Well, as a matter of fact, this May 27, 2004 article in VARIETY does say that he volunteered for the job !
"Brown volunteered for several months creating aerial footage of Ground Zero from police helicopters."
http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117923995?refcatid=31


Please note that the VARIETY article is actually a film review of Gregg's movie/documentary titled "WORDS". Unfortunately, I've not been able to find and view "WORDS" yet, but it apparently mixes Gregg's Ground Zero imagery with tits/boobs/ nudity and Native American sweat lodges... Here's the "WORDS" poster posted on Gregg Brown's own website:
Image
http://www.greggbrown.com/words.shtml

And here comes the big scandal - as 'exposed' by the DAILY NEWS investigative crew... :P

"He's paid $300,000, but keeps 30,000 9-11 pix"
SHAMEFUL ABUSE OF 9-11 FOOTAGE

"A budding filmmaker that FEMA found in the yellow pages used his taxpayer-funded video of the smoldering World Trade Center ruins in a documentary featuring topless women chatting about their breasts, a Daily News investigation has found. Provided with unique access in an NYPD helicopter, Gregg Brown was flown by cops over the restricted air space of Ground Zero daily for eight months beginning on Sept. 15, 2001, capturing countless hours of grim video while snapping 30,000 photographs."
http://articles.nydailynews.com/2006-02 ... nter-video


I recommend reading the full Daily News article - it's hilarious.

And if you care, please read how Michelle Malkin (of all people) was "disgusted" by this scam:
http://michellemalkin.com/2006/02/12/an ... ound-zero/
Michelle Malkin's article contains another 'juicy' tidbit of ...uh...information (which I couldn't find in the above Daily News article):
"The Daily News notes that “two other filmmakers hired to record events at Ground Zero both signed contracts that specifically required them to turn over all materials to the government agency that hired them.”


So who is this Gregg Brown today? An actor. Uh sorry, a comedian, of course ! :lol:
Image
"GREGG BROWN (The Actor) has entertained audiences in New York City and across the country first with the cult-favorite cable TV show FACE TV! WITH GREGG BROWN, then with the critically acclaimed and award winning documentary film WORDS."

Just adding two PHONYTOGRAPHERS to our phonytographers collection : :rolleyes:


"Kevork Djansezian"- of GETTY IMAGES
and
"Jae C. Hong" - of the ASSOCIATED PRESS

We are asked to believe that the two of them captured these two butterfly images.
Please read - with a critical mind - the TIME caption below ("explaining" how such coincidences may occur...) :

Image

This ridiculous story by TIME MAGAZINE ("photojournalists working side by side") has the sole purpose of lending some credence to the many absurdly similar (computer-generated) news images published in the press - being credited to different 'photoreporters'. In reality, a vast proportion of the current news media imagery is created in the digital domain which, of course, allows only for a limited range of vantage points to be depicted. This is why they feel the need to 'justify' the implausible, chain-assembled imagery that they keep churning out. The above TIME article aims to imprint in our brains the false notion that their bogus news imagery is legit and authentic.

Jose Jimenez

He has been mentioned in the Falling Man and other friends briefly but I thought it would be good to look at some of his other projects. Here's one of his 9-11 photos:

Image

First off, his website seems to have disappeared: http://www.josejimeneztirado.com/

From Zoominfo: (Cached Page) http://www.zoominfo.com/CachedPage/?arc ... me=Jimenez

José Jimenez-Tirado - World Press Photo
http://www.worldpressphoto.com, 10 Oct 2004 [cached]
Jose Jimenez, born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, decided to start his career as a photojournalist at the age of 24.He worked for six years with several commercial photographers, spent two years as an assistant cameraman in the film industry and later worked for three years on a photo essay on heroin addicts in Puerto Rico entitled "The Enemy Within".Those series of images got him his first job as a staff photographer at a newspaper in 1998.He worked at Editorial Primera Hora for six years until May of 2004. Since then, he has been working as a freelance photographer. In January 2005, he established Auxiliaris, a small NGO dedicated to helping victims through his photography.

From September 1 - October 7, 2007 at the Nixon Presidential Library Musem, "A special exhibit, featuring 50 photographs taken nine days after the fall of Saddam Hussein. The exhibition, a restrospective of life and death in Iraq, was the result of award-winning photojournalist Jose Jimenez-Tirado’s trip to Iraq in 2003. A documentary film showing his journey back to Iraq in 2004 to deliver donated goods to an orphanage is also on display. Jimenez, who personally helped mount the exhibition, was available to the public on opening day."


http://www.nixonlibrary.gov/themuseum/e ... aq2003.php

Photos of Obama arriving in Puerto Rico:
http://www.corbisimages.com/photographe ... nez-tirado

Haiti Earthquake:
http://photophilanthropy.org/gallery-po ... uakes-cry/

Jose also shoots Sports and Political events in Puerto Rico and won 2nd Prize for this 2004 World Press Photo Contest shot: http://neon.pictura-hosting.nl/wpp/wpp_ ... 004028.jpg

Image

Tens of thousands march toward the Capitol in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on Friday, demanding legislators agree on a solution to keep the government from shutting down on Monday.


To me it seems as though Jose is not a very active photographer. I can't imagine he makes enough of a living shooting sports events in Puerto Rico to support any family that he may have? The 9-11 and Iraq propaganda projects likely paid him a nice chunk of change to relax for the rest of his life, and he'll probably get called for special psyop events in the future.

This is a stunning example of implausibility Simon. You make a good and very-frightening point....

This whole composition piece must be some form of challenge to the reader, a litmus test of citizen credulity. Perhaps these photojournos are conjoined twins, or maybe they share the same TLR camera? But is there also an element of test and challenge to wit in that verbiage written below? Perhaps the writer could not 'bear' to see such 'bare-faced' artificiality. No real-world copywriter would make an elementary mistake in selecting the correct word, slap-bang in the middle of the text (in the sense that bare means to be naked or exposed and bear means to carry, experience or endure).

So is there whistle-blowing here, or toying with the consumer, or just casual mistakes made by the producers? Does the difference between the treelines to the right of each flower-ball appear credible? These pictures not only appear false: they appear to be deliberately composed to look as if they are false.

Where does this take the whole canon of NatGeo-style photojoe composition shots? Despite having had an existence well in advance of digital pixel-pics, these type of glossy mags have adorned the tables and minds of the consumersphere for decades. They always say a picture tells a thousand words- who's to say, aside from us bitter cynics, that the story they claim to convey is ever truly true?

We must remember that these costly color factporn bibles, visceral dreamcatchers for the chattering classes, have covered every momentous event in modern history. Acting as a highbrow proto-Internet, covering topics as seminal as spaceflight, environmental 'issues', archeological miracles, all to become revered reference books on the home-school shelves of our minds. Where might this end- and where did it begin?

My favorite line: ( as the thorny question of re-entry is raised - at 7:02)

Interviewer: "Then you're convinced they'll get you back to earth?"
Jose Jimenez: "I'm convinced they will get me back to earth!!.......Just, how far INTO it?....That's what I'm not convinced about."

:P Stellar...

Glad you liked it Simon. He is the comedian Bill Dana who appeared on the Ed Sullivan show many times, now 87 years old. It's a little corny but I enjoy it too. :D

I've come across this interesting web about historical records of doctored pictures.

http://www.fourandsix.com/photo-tampering-history/

Though photo manipulation has become more common in the age of digital cameras and image editing software, it actually dates back almost as far as the invention of photography. Gathered below is an overview of some of the more notable instances of photo manipulation in history. For recent years, an exhaustive inventory of every photo manipulation would be nearly impossible, so we focus here on the instances that have been most controversial or notorious, or ones that raise the most interesting ethical questions.


I think it's pretty curious to see that in the "View entries by year or topic" selection there's only a year that is not mentioned: 2001. Supposedly, no doctored pictures noticed that year.

In case of any member of this forum would like to help:

We’ll continue to update this gallery as more incidents come to our attention, so if you come across any notable ones you think we should include, feel free to send us an e-mail at contact@foundandsix.com

They have been giving Emmy Awards to the phonytographers of 9/11 - right up to 2013!

Image
David Handschuh and Todd Maisel

'We witnessed 9/11 through their lenses,' said videographer Rebecca Davis, who was nominated for a local Emmy on Wednesday."

Read more: http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/dai ... z2vb96CrzF

"Davis’ series featured interviews with six Daily News photographers who rushed to Ground Zero when the towers collapsed — some of them seriously injured and barely escaping with their lives."
Image
NY DAILY NEWS caption: "New York Daily News staff photographer David Handschuh had his leg shattered by falling debris while photographing the choatic scene."
http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/dai ... -1.1257027


Poor, poor David Handschuh... Hey, is he missing a leg? What a 9/11 hero he is, no? Surely, he was hit by some falling tower debris, no? The scene looks all too realistic too have been faked, no? Surely, it would be offensive to hold any doubts about Mr Handschuh's ordeal, no? :rolleyes:

Nope: David Handschuh fits right into our list of people to interview about their (alleged) 9/11 experience.

Thanks go to "Synergetic" who has been doing a great job diffusing our Cluesforum efforts over at the David Icke forums:
