#ME

We constantly mirror ourselves, comparing ourselves to others. At the same time, becoming familiar with oneself is an important part of the process of maturing into an independent individual in community with others.

The museum was founded in 1995 when the Norwegian Government bought the collections that belonged to Preus Fotomuseum, a private museum. The Norwegian State is the owner of the museum. In May 2001 the museum moved into Magasin A at Karljohansvern in Horten, about one hours drive from Oslo. The interior decoration is drawn by Architect Sverre Fehn. The collections contains photographies, ather kind of images, cameras and other technical equipment that shed light on the history of photography. There is a wide representation of the international history of photography in the image collection. Preus museum's library holds international standard.

[1/7] Hei! Mitt navn er Daniel Kalinikov, og som det forrige innlegget la opp til, så er jeg glad i det som kalles det avgjørende øyeblikket. Starter min gjesteuke med et bilde jeg tok på turné med @tixmusic i fjor høst. Under konserten var det en jente i publikum som besvimte av pusteproblemer i lokalet som var overdøvet av trang plass, påvirkede ungdommer og dårlig luft. Jeg rakk å se hva som skjedde, og fikk dette i det hun ble dratt over avgrensingen. Jeg personlig blir truffet av ambivalens
