Bergensbanen, The Bergen Railway, was considered an engineering marvel upon its opening in 1911. Now, as then, it is considered an important link between east and west in Norway, connecting the capital of Oslo to Bergen on the west coast. Its importance at the time can be read in Anders Beer-Wilses photos from the line’s first years. He photographed both the people building it and the landscape it traversed.
This is an ongoing project to document the lines role in the both the landscape and in society, over a hundred years after Wilse.
