Berg and Høeg Photographs

Preus Museum

or
Marie Høeg (1866-1949) and Bolette Berg (1872-1944) were Norwegian photographers from Horton, Norway. Marie, the more outgoing of the two, was an active women's rights advocate who also enjoyed crossdressing in private. A private collection of photographs form the Berg and Høeg photography studio primarily shows Marie, with occasional appearances of Bolette, crossdressing in various fashions. These photographs show Marie's willingness to digress from and contradict social norms.
