Nina Berman photographed the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Later she put some of those images together in diptychs and triptychs.
Ms. Berman lives in New York and is a member of the photographer-owned photo agency Noor. She spoke with James Estrin about her post-Sept. 11 work as well as her projects “Purple Hearts — Back From Iraq” (Trolley, 2004) and “Homeland” (Trolley, 2008).

On the 17th of August 1908, Fantasmagorie, the first fully animated feature film was released in Paris by the Gaumont company. Created by Emile Cohl, Fantasmagorie is considered one of the masterpieces of animated cinema and of early cinema as a whole. Done in a white-on-black style, reminiscent of a film negative, the film broke with the realist tradition emerging in live action at the time. It was much more stylized and fantastic, in some ways anticipating the surrealist movement of later decades.

Composed in 1953 (eight years after the city’s bombing, and coinciding with the end of the American occupation of Japan), its six inner movements were inspired by six paintings by Iri and Toshi Maruki (the score’s original title was The Hiroshima Panels ), framed by a Prelude and Elegy. http://www.arkivmusic.com/classical/Name/Masao-Ohki/Composer/148971-1
