During a ceremony in France, a 9/11 Memorial board member accepted a donation of 22 photographic studies of the World Trade Center towers. Board member Craig Stapleton, a former U.S. Ambassador to France, received the gift yesterday on behalf of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in a ceremony at the French Senate building.

The photographic studies were made by the late Paris Opera director Bernard Lefort.  “The photos were made in the early 1980s and are geometric, abstract studies of the buildings,” said Clifford Chanin, director of education at the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

French Sen. Roland du Luart hosted the ceremony.
