    Event Description:
    Knud Knudsen (1832-1915) was an early studio photographer in Bergen and the first photographer in Norway to travel extensively around the country. Knudsen captured glimpses of everyday life, special occasions, landscapes, and people in his detailed and dramatic black and white images. Learn about Knudsen, his photographic processes, his passion for horticulture, as well as life in Norway in the late nineteenth century. Laurann Gilbertson, our speaker, is a Des Moines,Iowa native. She holds a BA in Anthropology and an MS in Textiles & Clothing, both from Iowa State University. She was Textile Curator at Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum in Decorah, Iowa, for 19 years and is now the Chief Curator there.
