Burenhult Photography

Burenhult Photography

The background to Burenhult Photography is major world-wide archaeological and photographic expeditions. The study and documentation of indigenous societies and archaeological remains has been the focus for these expeditions, and archaeological excavations have been conducted, e.g. in Sweden, Ireland, Portugal and on the Trobriand Islands in Papua New Guinea.


The topics of the collections mainly concern archaeology, anthropology, culture, heritage, nature and travel, and the archive contains about 50 000 images. A large part of the photographic documentation is unique in several ways. A majority of the images from tribal societies were taken in the 1980:s and early 90:s, and in many cases, for various reasons, they cannot be retaken today.
