c. 1900-1930: Weddings of Sogndal

The Norwegian municipality of Sogndal, in Sogn og Fjordane county, sits on the northern shore of Sognefjorden. The photographs shown here, spanning the first decades of the twentieth century, portray assembled guests at local weddings. The older photographs, taken around 1900, are the work of Knut Aaaning (1880-1922).  Aaaning had trained as a photographer in Bergen. He then worked from his hometown of Stryn - and possibly from his home.
