Stongfjorden - as seen by Paul Stang
Paul Stang (1888-1923) was a self-taught photographer who, camera in hand, documented the establishment of aluminium production in the small village of Stongfjorden, Norway. Paul was fond of nature and disliked the development of industry in Stongfjorden. Even so he, like many others in Stongfjorden, found work at the aluminium factory - A/S Stangfjorden Elektrokemiske Fabriker. However, Paul retained an active interest in the farm work carried out on his father's farm Stang - an interest which is documented in this collection. Paul also photographed the people of Stongfjorden and all sorts of leisure activities. The images in this collection are all from the period 1906-1923.
We hope you enjoy the collection, and please do add information and comments.
