Inspired by my uncle Jan, and probalbly family tradition, I got my own camera in the early 1950'ies. I also enlisted in the local «kameraklubb» in my home town Skien, and spent lots of late nights in the cellar at the police station, where the Skien camera club had its rather filthy darkroom. The rest is history. Some of it brought back on this site, together with even older material. Over in the Jan Nordby-site you also will find photos taken by older generations on his and my mothers side. Equally I have inherited a number of negatives from my father, some in this collection.
