Armaments manufacturer Alfred Krupp who allegedly used slave labor to make weapons for the Nazis, contacted the famous Arnold Newman for a portrait in 1963.
Upon finding out that Newman was a Jew, Krupp refused to let him take the photograph. Newman insisted to have Krupp look at his portfolio before making a final decision and after seeing Newman’s portfolio Krupp accepted.
On July 6, 1963, they went into a factory in Essen which belonged to Krupp, where Newman decided to make Krupp look as evil as possible under the eerie demonic lighting of the factory.
When Krupp first saw the portrait he was livid. Newman was more tongue-in-cheek: “As a Jew, it’s my own little moment of revenge.”
As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t been blogging all week. I’ve been very busy with work and school and exams, and it’s just been really hectic.
With that being said, Tumblr has not been notifying me of messages/fan-mail which is why I haven’t been responding, I’m not purposely ignoring anyone, I just saw everything today!
