Bride from Bjerkeland Bergens Stift, carte de visite, from an album. These images demonstrate how Selmer reused motifs in different formats, including stereo views, cabinet cards or carte de visite. Here, Selmer has combined the woman from the glass plate studio portrait with a drawing depicting a traditional Norwegian cottage to create one of his well-known folk-costume images. Selmer utilized some daguerreotype images in a similar fashion. Both images: The Photography Archive, University Museum of Bergen, University of Bergen.
