Photographer's Note

The Hanseatic League was founded by north German towns and German merchant communities abroad to protect their trading interests. The league dominated commercial activity in northern Europe from the 13th to the 15th century. This old part of Bergen, known as Bryggen (a UNESCO World Heritage site) is adjacent to the wharf where the city got its start, and is the only above-ground survivor of the Hanseatic League’s four overseas “offices."

Today the narrow, wooden alleyways between the buildings are filled with stores selling everything from Norwegian knitwear and jewelry to moose-leather jackets.
