Subject: Adam Stacey, on a tube train between King's Cross and Russell Square, London, July 7, 2005, during the 7 July 2005 London bombings.

More information: For how the photograph came to be taken, see Seward, Zachary. "Phones Offer Snapshot Of Terror", Forbes, July 8, 2005.

Photographer: Eliot Ward took this photograph of Adam Stacey using Ward's cell phone camera.

I (SlimVirgin) am currently trying to contact Eliot Ward or Adam Stacey to confirm the licence. In the meantime, this is all I know:

Copyright seems to have been assumed by Adam Stacey. The image was uploaded from the cell phone to MoblogUK by Alfie Dennen of Moblog at Stacey's request. It states clearly on Moblog here that it was released under a Creative Commons licence, and if you click on the CC link, it goes to the CC attribution 2.5 generic page. The Forbes article says:

In a picture snapped on his friend's Sony Ericsson V800 camera phone, Adam Stacey covers his mouth to avoid smoke inhalation between the King's Cross and Russell Square subway stations in London yesterday ... Ward's photo, taken between the King's Cross and Russell Square stations, where at least 21 people were killed, quickly made its way from his phone to MoblogUK, a photo-sharing site for camera phones.

In or around December 2005, Time magazine used the image as one of their images of the year; see Best Photos of the Year 2005, image 20/24, Time magazine, accessed January 18, 2010. Stacey wrote to Dennen at that time appearing to confirm that he had released it: "I do remember them calling me at some point asking if they could use the picture, but it was after I had spoken to you and agreed to the Creative Commons license. I think they were trying to offer me money for the pic but I said I didn't want any and that anyone could use it if they wanted." I'll forward the email to permissions.
