FRAGMENTS | Walter Franz | Part I
Walter Franz, a German photographer and director, enlisted to the German Air Force in 1938 and served as a photographer during the war. Due to his close ties with Albert Speer, who was the main architect of the Nazi Party, he managed to team up with Hitler and from 1941 became his close and favorite photographer. At the end of the war he was arrested by the allied forces, imprisoned for several months, and most of his photographs were confiscated. In 1988 his only son found a suitcase with the rest of his photographs from that time.
