A Moveable Beast by Helge Skodvin
Alexander Zaxarov
Dec 19, 2019

Photographer Helge Skodvin, who visited the museum regularly as a boy, was given permission to document the migration of the natural history department.

Even long after death, animals can still be displaced by habitat loss. In 2013, the University Museum in Bergen, Norway, was closed for renovations and its collections were moved into temporary storage.

The curators had to take great care with their charges, some of which are over 150 years old and as unwieldy as they are fragile. It took seven burly men to lift the stuffed African elephant onto a pallet, although in these photos no humans are seen, only taxidermy idling in transit.
