Arnold Newman And Alfred Krupp

Alfred Krupp by Arnold Newman

Pause To Begin features a post about the famous portrait sitting when Arnold Newman photographed German industrialist Alfred Krupp. I don’t really have much to add to it, except to say that this particular picture is frequently cited as an example of editorializing with photographry and that, the way that I heard the story, Newman’s assistant left the peel-offs from the polaroid in the office trashcan and Krupp pulled them out just after Newman left and was completely enraged. Which is why, as an assistant, I suspect, I’m always told to have my own trash bag and to leave nothing for the client to find.
