Nansen’s Silent Vengeance
Fridtjof Nansen’s 150 anniversary was celebrated in its own way by Norwegian leading newspaper “Aftenposten”. It has published a controversial material about Norwegian ikon and his love affair with an American journalist Brenda Ueland in 1929. Nansen, who by that time was a widower, sent a few love letters together with his pictures were he has exposed own naked body. Big love to dish the dirt had a funny outcome to the newspaper. Facebook, where Aftenposten has an account, was not enthusiastic at all about distribution of an erotic visual material. The post was erased and newspaper was warned, that in case it will happen again, the Aftenposten’s account will be deleted from the Facebook.
