Photographer's Note

This is a christian ceremony we call "konfirmasjon". Boys an girls at the age of 15 (the year they turn 15) confirm that they still belong to the church and believe in God. The wear this white robe this day when they stand before the priest and get his blessing. This ceremony is linked with baptising, so that only those who are baptised can do this. After this event it is common to have a nice dinner with the family and relatives, and also they usually get quite a lot of presents. So nowadays this ceremony is more for the presents than for the faith in God for many of them. Of course this is a simple way of putting it, and you can of course google it and read more about it.
