The Young Ones

The Young Ones

The story of these young men’s journey from Scandinavia to The Holy Land is, in many ways, the story of eyeeye.me. One dreary Tuesday afternoon we found ourselves in the basement of a second-hand shop (don’t ask), when — in the back, half-hidden behind old pots and pans, kerosene lamps, bottles of booze and other leftovers from the cellarettes of some recently deceased Copenhagener — we spotted 10 boxes of glass plate negatives. These negatives, about 300 in all, had somehow made their way from the Middle East back to Scandinavia, surviving two world wars and abysmal storage conditions, before being discovered by someone with a strange passion for photographs of the past.
What you see here represents the very best of that find, a few hand-picked images, carefully curated and gently restored, allowing you to witness these young men’s journey of their lives.
In the year 1900 they set out from Scandinavia down through Germany, Switzerland, Tyrol, Austria-Hungary, Italy, before finally reaching Palestine / The Holy Land.
These images are some of the rare glass plate negatives, curated by eyeeye.me, that bear witness to the young men’s inner and outer journey.
