Of particular interest is the Renbjør collection, which contains some of Norway’s earliest photographic material in color. Harald Renbjör pioneered color photography in Norway, starting as early as 1907 with three color photography and Autochrome. He also explored practically every other way of photographing in color. In 1948 Harald and his son Per founded Norway’s first professional color film lab.

Renbjør’s collection of three color images, in which you also find Norway’s oldest existing color print from 1907, is rated as one of the five most important collections of it’s kind in the world. The museum is the only institution in the world to have the complete work flow of the three-colour photography process, from negative to finished print.
