Fotograferandet på Hertonäs gård

Fotografins historia är fylld av multipla uppfinnare och upptäckter, som tillsammans skapat den typ av fotografi vi har idag. Under första hälften av 1800-talet gjordes de flesta genombrott som möjliggjorde fotografering. Olika kemiska preparat, material och komponenter utvecklades för framkallning, och fotograferandet blev snabbt mycket populärt. Också herrskapet på Hertonäs gård och deras släktingar lät fotografera sig. Det finns bl. a. flera stiliga visitkortsfotografier i Hertonäs gårds museums samlingar. Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Valokuvaus Herttoniemen kartanolla

Valokuvauksen historia on täynnä keksijöitä ja innovaatioita, jotka yhteensä loivat nykyiset valokuvamme. 1800-luvun alkupuolella ensimmäiset keksinnöt tehtiin, jotka mahdollistivat valokuvaamisen. Eri kemialliset yhdisteet, materiaalit ja komponentit syntyivät valokuvien kehittämistä varten, ja valokuvauksesta tuli pian hyvin suosittua. Myös Herttoniemen kartanon herrasväki ja heidän sukulaisensa antoivat valokuvauttaa itsensä. M.m. monta tyylikästä käyntikorttivalokuvaa on säilynyt Herttoniemen kartanon museon kokoelmissa.

Photography in Hertonäs Manor

Photographic history is filled with many inventors and inventions, which all together have contributed to photography as we know it today. Most breakthroughs were made during the first half of the 1800s, when different chemical components, materials and mixtures were developed. Photography quickly gained popularity among all socioeconomic classes. Read more below! Läs mera »

En nobelprisvinnare var här!

Min praktik på Hertonäs gårds museum sommaren 2021 har varit en lärorik upplevelse. Hittills i mitt arbete har jag katalogiserat över 2000 fotografier till webbsidan Desky och de har gett mig en inblick i Hertonäs gårds historia. Ett mycket intressant fotografi, som jag stötte på tidigt i min praktik, var en bild av en gammal man framför Hertonäs huvudbyggnad 1934. Mannen på bilden är ingen annan än Nobelprisvinnaren i litteratur Verner von Heidenstam (1859–1940)! Läs mer nedan!Läs mera »

Nobelin palkinnon saaja kävi täällä!

Työharjoitteluni Herttoniemen kartanon museossa kesällä 2021 on ollut opettavainen kokemus. Tähän mennessä olen luetteloinut työssäni yli 2000 valokuvaa nettiin Deskyn sivustoille ja ne ovat kertoneet minulle paljon Herttoniemen kartanon historiasta. Eräs hyvin kiinnostava valokuva, johon törmäsin aiemmin työharjoittelussani, oli kuva iäkkäästä miehestä Herttoniemen päärakennuksen edessä vuonna 1934. Mies kuvassa ei ole kukaan muu kuin Nobelin kirjallisuuspalkinnon saaja Verner von Heidenstam (1859–1940)! Lue lisää alla!Läs mera »

A Nobel Prize Winner was Here!

My internship at Herttoniemi Manor summer 2021 has been an informative experience to me. Thus far in my job I have catalogued over 2000 photographs to the website Desky and they have showed me much about the history of Herttoniemi Manor. One particularly interesting photograph I bumped into earlier in my internship was a photo of an old man standing in front of the main building of Herttoniemi in 1934. The man on the photo is none other than the Nobel prize winner in literature Verner von Heidenstam (1859–1940)! Read more down below!Läs mera »

On Conservation

11.07.2021 kl. 08:00
We started our internship at Hertonäs Manor Museum June 7th. As I write this a few weeks later, I’ve scanned about 300 photographs and documents from the picture archives of the museum and uploaded them to the Desky website. The work is far from done – at least 300 more photos and pictures are waiting for their turn in the scanner. Moreover, they’re all to be tagged with keywords, sorted, put into new, light blue paper enclosures, and finally stored in the fireproof archive drawers. All of this strives to make the collections available for present and future generations. Read more about my thoughts on the subject below!

During these weeks we interns have been confronted with a number of conundrums and problems we’ve had to solve – how and with what should we digitize, in what order, how should the work be divided between us, with how much caution and with what conservation concerns in mind should we approach our work? After attending a seminar on conservation held by Helsinki City Museum during our second week at work our concerns were reignited – will the light from the scanner damage the photographs, and should I stop keeping my water bottle with me at my desk? Balancing a full coffee cup as I walk through the museum, as I’ve done a number of times, definitely started to seem like a bad idea moving forward.


Aerial view of the manor, 1950. Even though people have been living in the Herttoniemi region for hundreds of years, the difference between then and now is striking - less than a hundred years later, the manor is surrounded by asphalt and high-rise buidlings. Herttoniemi had at the time of this photo already become part of the Helsinki area, and plans for building great 50’s suburbs here were already in the works. Picture: SOV (from Herttoniemi manor museum’s picture archives, collection no 113).

Over the course of the summer, we’ll move on from digitizing the photographs to taking our own pictures of the museum’s items and looking through the collections of objects sitting in storage. Our hopes are, that after we defeat the picture archives we’ll still have time during the summer to start uploading images, descriptions and research regarding the museum items as well as making the museum’s catalogue of objects accessible online. Ideally, one should the be able to look through the collections without even having to step foot in the museum (although, everyone is welcome to visit, of course!), and the items can remain undisturbed and protected in a cool and dark room, which’ll keep them in good condition for many years to come.


Some of the picture collections have already received new folders and have been digitized. Now, about 100 more are awaiting the same treatment…. (Picture of Herttoniemi manor museum’s picture collections, box 1). Picture: IK 2021.

The goal of conservation is just that – to preserve our physical cultural heritage for as long as we can. Digitizing the collections of the museum doesn’t only do that, it also makes the items more accessible to a larger group of people as well as lowering the bar for finding and using the historical materials kept at the manor. If you’re looking for, say, pictures of Helsinge during the early 1900’s – downloading them from the Desky website (where all of our material is free to use!) is way easier then setting up a meeting with the museum’s curator to find, copy, and photograph the material you want for yourself manually. As a student myself, I’m going to go ahead and say that digital photo archives and databases have been a goldmine – thanks to, i.e., SLS, the National Archives of Finland, and the Finnish National Gallery! The material we produced during our museal course this spring would definitely not have been as nice-looking without the pictures we found on those sites. (For more about that project, see the blog posts from 1.6.2021 and 30.5.2021 on the museum’s blog).

Right now, we have no idea what additional challenges we’ll face during the course of our internship. I really look forward to learning more about conservation and taking care of museum items this summer – the next time I write a blog post, I hope I’ve gotten to stuff many old dresses with wrapping tissues, folded a hundred new photograph folders, and found a lot of cool stuff among the museum’s hidden and uncatalogued collections.
