Perhaps it is not a well-known fact, but as all diehard fans know, Natalie played the titular role in “The Diary of Anne Frank”, a play released in Broadway in 1997. This week, photographer Frank Ockenfels has launched a photo book of his work, in which we can a stunning portrait of Natalie taken during the play. Ockenfels himself explains the purpose of the photo:
The Natalie Portman one is really good. She was on Broadway in The Diary of Anne Frank and a friend of mine called and asked if I could photograph Natalie and create journals — like the journals of Anne Frank kind of thing. These photographs came from that shoot.
