Re: Jose Ortiz-Echague and Fresson
Several reasons I can suggest.
There may also be personal connections of which I am not aware. But here are some of the things that may have moved them.
At the time Ortiz-Echague was one of the most famous photographers in Europe, and had been using the Fresson paper for almost 50 years. Perhaps they felt that they owed him the favor.
And, he was one of the most powerful men in Spain and a person of great accomplishments outside of photography. He was one of the first pilots in the Spanish, rose to the rank of General in the Army, and served as President of both SEAT (a company that produced cars) and of another company that produced airplanes.
Basically, I figure they came to the conclusion that their secrets were safe with him, given his age at the time and his status in Spanish society.
