About This Image
Corners trimmed. The number "15" on the soldiers' hats. There is a lieutenant in the center second row. Illegible writing on verso including a date 1933 and the Scandinavian word for Christmas (Julen). The soldiers appear to be equipped with Krag-Jorgensen Danish 8mm M1889-type infantry rifles. The coat of arms along with the word Julen, plus the rifles and kepis on the soldiers seem to indicate that this was either a Danish or a Norwegian platoon (likely the latter). This fine photograph of a group portrait of soldiers reminds me a great deal of the work of the German August Sander. The tonality is also very similar with rich purple color.
