Walter Frentz - The Führer’s Photographer


General Photography

“He was the Führer’s most favored photographer and cameraman. Walter Frentz was the man Adolf Hitler trusted to put him in the right light. Now a new biography has uncovered pictures of the Nazi leader never seen before.” (story) Unfortunately, Walter Frentz’s website is available in German only; it would be quite instructive for non-German speakers to see how his past is glossed over in a sickeningly nonchalant fashion, with leading Third Reich figures presented as “personalities”. You might not be familiar with the name Walter Frentz, but it’s very likely you have seen a photo of him.
