  • Danish Wartime Photos

    Posted by Jonathan on May 26th, 2005 (All posts by )

    Erik Petersen, a Danish press photographer whose career began around 1939 and who died in 1997, left an archive of hundreds of films he had taken during the war but had never shown to anyone. Now some of these photos are available online and they are well worth a look. Not only do they provide new information and perspective on an important period, many of them are also quite beautiful as images. They are obviously products of someone who had an unusually good eye.

    (This online discussion provides some background info. A book of Petersen’s work is also available.)
