By now, many have seen the horrific photograph from the front page of the New York Post ("Police question man in N.Y. subway train death," Dec. 5). A man clings helplessly to the platform of a New York subway seconds before he is struck and killed by an oncoming car. The man who took the photograph was lambasted and humiliated on the Today Show by the supreme judges, Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. They questioned, grilled and toasted the photographer. Their assumption was that the photographer should have been attempting to rescue the man who was shoved onto the path of the oncoming subway car. His reasoning was that he took multiple photographs with the flash to try to call attention to the car engineer to get him to stop.

In the spring of 1981, when Marion Rodgers was a senior at Goucher College, she nearly fell on top of a box of old papers that would change her life.

Two news websites Monday published images of the three of the most secretive U.S. agencies including the Maryland-based National Security Agency. Outside of a single undated image provided by the NSA  - which has been used repeatedly by The Sun and other media outlets for years - the agency's Fort Meade headquarters has not been extensively photographed.  Under the cover of darkness, artist Trevor Paglen used a helicopter last fall to photograph the National Security Agency in Fort Meade; the National Reconnaissance Office in Chantilly, Va.; and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency in Springfield, Va.

High on the list of must-see exhibits in New York just now is "Paul Strand Circa 1916" at the Metropolitan Museum. Strand (1890-1976) was one of the leading modernist photographers of the 20th century, and this exhibit of works from early in his career shows how he developed his aesthetic.Highly influenced by photographer and modern-art advocate Alfred Stieglitz, Strand began as a "pictorialist," producing soft-focused impressionistic images. But he soon progressed to a series of New York street scenes capturing the energy of the city, followed by cubist-influenced still lifes that approached abstraction.

Austrian composer Gustav Mahler, for example, found in a set of German translations of Li Po the impetus to create "Das Lied von der Erde" ("The Song of the Earth"). And four years after the 1911 posthumous premiere of that profound music, American poet Ezra Pound published "Cathay," his influential interpretations of Li Po and other Chinese poets.
