Erik Petersen. Danish newspaper photographer. Died in 1997. He took a number of pictures around WWII. He never developed them. Fortunately, sixty years later, someone else has. Now they can be found in a book. Here's a bit of bloggery as well.

If anybody wants a translation of the comments to one of the pictures, just say so.

I liked these kids' ability to still imagine fun.

These are fascinating, thanks IndigoJones. This one in particular caught my eye.

The important thing to see here, I think, is the grand old time these guys were having as the archetypical evil empire was already on the march.

Easily as good as Boubat, Brassai etc.

Thanks, IndigoJones! Misteraitch, I was going to comment on that one (I'd love to be able to have it blown up and framed), and I was also particularly struck by this one.

Write to the web site. You never know. The most amazing people will say yes when asked. And good luck.
