Digital Collections: National Library of Norway Releases Thousands of Intimate Photographs of Jazz Greats
The Norwegian music journalist Randi Hultin (1926–2000) opened her home to many of the great jazz legends. She documented her life in the company of artists such as John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Count Basie in the form of tens of thousands of photographs – pictures which are now held in the National Library of Norway. The book and exhibition Randi Hultin.Pictures from a life in jazz provide a small glimpse into the unique collection. A large number of pictures have also been digitised and uploaded to the online archives at nb.no.
Some 18 metres of shelves containing archive material left by Randi Hultin are now held in the National Library.
