Barna på misjonsmarka: hvem var de?

I anledning av at Studentsamskipnaden i Stavanger har tatt i bruk sitt nye bygg med studenthybler (SIS-bolig) her på Misjonsmarka, har Det Norske Misjonsselskap og Misjonshøgskolen gått sammen om å gi et bilde i gave. En stor forstørrelse preget på plexiglass er gjort i stand, og det vil snart bli montert i byggets inngangsparti. Bildet er tatt i første del av 1950-tallet, og midt på bildet er også noen barn å se. Nå undres vi på hvem disse barna er.

A color slide from Cameroon

The image on the banner is a manipulation of two independent photos: a scanned color slide from the Olaf A. Ellingsen Cameroon collection, and a digital photo of a sample paper frame.

Slides constitute a considerable amount of of the photo collection at the Mission Archives.

Motivet på banneret er en manipulasjon av to uavhengige fotografier: et skannet fargelysbilde fra Olaf A. Ellingsens billedserie fra Kamerun og et digitalt bilde av en tilfeldig valgt lysbilderamme av papp.

Lysbilder (dias) utgjør en betydelig del av fotosamlingen i Misjonsarkivet.
