‘The evening light is painting fragments of the past’ is a photo in the gallery ‘Lost cities‘.
It’s a photo I made last winter, of Fishermen’s sheds in Stenbjerg Landingsplads.
Stenbjerg is a fishing village on the former island of Thy in the northwest of Jutland, Denmark. It is noted for its small white fishermen’s huts next to the sandy beach (Stenbjerg Landingsplads).
The history of Stenbjerg is rather vague but probably goes back to the late 17th century when sand was swept in over the fields making it impossible to till the land. As a result, the peasants began to earn their living from fishing.
The fishermen’s sheds in Stenbjerg Landingsplads were built around 1900 for storing their nets and equipment when they began fishing with motor boats. After commercial fishing was discontinued in 1972, the buildings fell into disrepair. They were restored in 2000 and again in 2012 and are now used by recreational fishermen.
