Često slušamo o nekim tajnim zaverama i pričama koje se “kriju” iza nekih događaja i dešavanja koja su poznata široj javnosti, pa kada se sve otkrije, onda ta ista javnost “poludi” na ovaj ili onaj način. Tako se brojne priče vezuju i za neke poznate fotografije koje godinama kruže svetom, ali se za njih ne zna u velikoj meri. Možda baš sad saznaš neku istinu koja će te zaintrigirati i navesti na razmišljanje.

Portret Alberta Ajnštajna

Odlično znamo fotografiju Ajnštajna koji se plazi, te se oko njega ništa ne vidi. I on je sam obožavao, pa je stavljao u sve svoje čestitke i gde je drugo mogao. Ali je malo poznata priča o njenom nastanku. Kada je proslavljao svoj 72. rođendan, po završetku je ušao u kola, a onda je fotograf Artur Sase zamoli da ga slika, na šta se Albert naplazio i tako ostao dok blic nije “sevnuo”. Ali, u kolima je bio sa svojim saputnicima, slika ih je sve obuhvatila, no je fotograf očigledno imao dobru marketinšku ideju da ovu fotografiju pretvori u portret.

Ručak na vrhu nebodera

Ova fotografija je nastala kako bi se promovisao Rockefeller centar, ali malo ko zna da je ona u stvari sasvim istinita, jer je na njoj 11 graditelja koji ručaju na ogromnoj visini, 11 kolega koji su u tom trenutku napravili pauzu od teškog, fizičkog rada.

Lunch atop a Skyscraper (New York Construction Workers Lunching on a Crossbeam). This famous grayscale photograph was taken during construction of 30 Rockefeller in Manhattan, New York City, United States. The photograph depicts eleven men eating lunch, seated on a girder with their feet dangling 840 feet (260 meters) above the New York City streets. The photo was taken on September 20, 1932, on the 69th floor of the RCA Building during the last months of construction. According to archivists, the photo was in fact prearranged. Although the photo shows real ironworkers, it is believed that the moment was staged by Rockefeller Center to promote its new skyscraper. The photo appeared in the Sunday, October 2 photo supplement of the New York Herald Tribune on October 2. • • • From the left, number three is Joseph Eckner, number four is Michael Breheny, number five is Albin Svensson and number six with the cigarette is John(Jack)Patrick Madden. The first man from the right is Slovak worker Gustáv (Gusti) Popovič from the village of Vyšný Slavkov in the Levoča District. Gusti was originally a lumberjack and carpenter. In 1932 he sent his wife Mariška a postcard with this photograph on which he wrote, "Don´t you worry, my dear Mariska, as you can see I'm still with bottle. Your Gusti." He came back to Vyšný Slavkov at the beginning of World War II and became a farmer. By the end of World War II, Gusti was killed by a grenade in his village. His and Mariška's joint grave is in the Vyšný Slavkov cemetery. The third from the right is Joe Curtis. The man sitting fourth from the right is allegedly Irishman Francis Michael Rafferty with his lifelong best friend and fellow Irishman, Stretch Donahue, sitting to his right. • • • #travelrouge #fbf #lunchatopaskyscraper #1932 #travelersnotebook #educationaltravel #schooltrips #schooltours #grouptours #learningbeyondtheclassroom #expose #exposè #exposuretours #newyorkcityhistory #nyctales #rockefellercenter #rockefellerbuilding
