Randi Hultin – Bilder fra et liv med jazz

The National Library of Norway was established in 1989. Its principal is “to preserve the past for the future”. The institution collect, index and preserve for posterity Norwegian published knowledge and culture production in all media.

Jazz critic Randi Hultin opened her home to many of jazz's greatest legends. She documented the intimate and social life of artists such as John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and Count Basie through thousands of photographs, many of them taken at her home in Gartnerveien, Oslo.

Superultraplus worked together with the National Library of Norway in creating an exhibition for Randi Hultin’s photos. In designing the exhibition, it was important to show both the kind and welcoming nature of Randi’s being together with her professionality and dedication towards her work.
