Valdemar Myhre lived from 1864 to 1916. He was born in Svaneke on the island of Bornholm in Denmark and lived here all his life. By his father, a painter, he taught the painter’s hand and set himself down as a painter in his birthplace but soon he learned photography and became the first permanent photographer in Svaneke, and it’s like “Photographer Myhre” he became known. In addition to personal photography, he threw himself early on photography in nature, and when postcards became common, he produced photographic postcards that were highly sought after, and certainly still happy for those who have received them in their time and saved them as they rare, beautiful pictures of bornholm they are. Myhre had an excellent ability to see a good motive, and his interest in nature was also reflected in the fact that he occasionally painted landscape images.
