Knud Knudsen (3 January 1832 – 21 May 1915) was one of Norway's first professional photographers and a pioneer within Norwegian photography. His work includes images from most of Norway in his time and documents much of Norwegian history and ethnology in his photography career 1862–1900. Knudsen was born in Odda, the son of a merchant who was also a pomologist. His professional career started as a retail clerk in Bergen, and in 1862 he traveled to Reutlingen to study pomology. He returned with an enthusiasm for photography the year after and opened his photography business in Bergen 1864.

dbo:abstract
  • Knud Knudsen (geboren am 3. Januar 1832 in Odda, Norwegen; gestorben am 21. Mai 1915 in Bergen, Norwegen) war einer der bedeutendsten skandinavischen Fotopioniere, der die bildlichen Vorstellungen der Landschaften Nordeuropas – insbesondere Norwegens – prägte. In seiner Heimat wurde er zunächst als Pomologe bekannt. Seine sich daran ab Mitte der 1860er Jahre anschließende Tätigkeit als Fotograf bewirkte ein über das Herkunftsland hinausreichendes künstlerisches Renommée seiner Person. In der Fotografie des 19. Jahrhunderts hatte sich Knudsen vor allem der Landschaftsfotografie zugewandt, oft verbunden mit Motiven, in denen er die traditionellen Sitten und Gebräuche der einheimischen Bevölkerung dokumentierte. Eines seiner Spezialgebiete war die Stereoskopie, mittels der er bei einem Teil seiner Bilder einen Effekt des räumlichen Sehens erzeugte. (de)
