About Fotografiska

Fotografiska is an internationally-renowned destination for photography founded in Stockholm. We aim to inspire a more conscious world through the power of photography by producing a broad range of rotating exhibitions, from easily accessible to hardcore conceptual, shot by grand masters and emerging talent. In eight short years, Fotografiska has established itself as a haven of innovation and free expression. Our presentation of photography is powerful and unparalleled, and includes over 170 exhibitions to date, such as David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Albert Watson, Sally Mann, Cooper & Gorfer, Ren Hang, and Christian Tagliavini.

In 2019, we will expand our presence globally, beginning with New York City.

Fotografiska New York will be anything but an ordinary museum, and we look forward to sharing our world-class photography, award-winning culinary experience, innovative academy, and cultural event programming with our new community.

Experience Fotografiska

Fotografiska is neither a museum nor a gallery, but an international meeting place, combining world-class photography with an exceptional dining experience, and culturally enriching programming.

Experience Fotografiska

Fotografiska is neither a museum nor a gallery, but an international meeting place, combining world-class photography with an exceptional dining experience, and culturally enriching programming.

Fotografiska shows several rotating exhibitions at once, which are developed directly with photographers. Our curatorial team is able to respond quickly to ever-changing societal issues, movements, and themes, which is reflected in our immersive and relevant exhibitions. Rising stars are displayed next to icons. Styles range across abstract, landscape, portrait, documentary and more. All that matters is the communicative power of the image.

Currently on view in our Stockholm location are Talent by Fotografiska, Hand to Hand by Paul Hansen and Åsa Sjöström, Stations by Noémie Goudal, and Lars Tunbjörk - a view from the side by Lars Tunbjörk.

The Fotografiska culinary experience combines taste, scent, and art into one multi-sensory experience. Fotografiska New York will be guided by Stockholm Chef Paul Svensson’s philosophy of “Sustainable Pleasure,” an idea that explores sensory stimulation through environmentally-friendly and sustainable offerings. The menu will feature quality, seasonal, and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients served in a welcoming environment.

Our eclectic events program hosts thought leaders across industries, and features artist talks, presentations, musical performances, film screenings, nightlife and workshops. We aim to create a space for guests to engage with art, and to connect with the world around them.

Fotografiska New York

Coming Spring 2019! Our new home at 281 Park Avenue South is a six-floor, 45,000 sq ft. historic landmarked building, originally constructed in 1894. The location is easily accessible at the nexus of Madison Square Park and Union Square in Manhattan’s vibrant Flatiron district. The building will feature three floors of exhibitions spaces, bespoke retail and culinary experiences, and a dedicated private event space. Award-winning architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy is leading the design and renovation of Fotografiska NYC. Esteemed design studio Roman and Williams will develop the interior concept for the second floor restaurant and speakeasy lounge annex. We will be creating a tech-enhanced, multi-sensory journey for visitors to experience throughout the exhibition and building space. Higgins Quasebarth & Partners are consulting on the preservation and restoration elements, such as the beautiful stained glass windows and intricate terra cotta façade.

Our Window Exhibitions

Leading up to our opening, we will be showcasing a preview of our exhibitions displayed in our massive Park Avenue and 22nd Street windows. Take a walk by for a sneak preview!

Currently on display: Martin Schoeller’s Close

Fotografiska is pleased to present a selection of images from Martin Schoeller’s series Close in the windows at 281 Park Avenue South - the future home of Fotografiska New York. This new installation features intimate and confrontational portraits that highlight each individual’s unique characteristics while simultaneously providing us with a look at how similar we are.

With this installation, Fotografiska invites viewers to ponder timely questions via parings of Schoeller’s celebrity portraits: What divides us? What brings us together? What defines a patriot? Is the Internet upholding our 1st Amendment rights? What is belief? In one call to action can a celebrity crossover to activist? These questions highlight relevant, controversial issues that are on the minds of many Americans around the midterm elections.

Fotografiska For Life

Fotografiska For Life spotlights important social issues by leveraging the power of photography to raise awareness, create change, and inspire a more conscious world.

Photography shows you the world – just as it is. Through it, we can change the world, bring attention to important social issues, provoke new perspectives and spark conversation, and incite people to action.

Through Fotografiska for Life, we are able to tell global stories from personal perspectives to spark curiosity and interest.

We start conversations and debates in our exhibition spaces and at our events, leverage our digital and social platforms to share knowledge, and create tangible impact by partnering with like-minded journalistic organizations, non-profits, experts and activists to turn engagement into action.

Past Exhibitions:

Icons, an exhibition about the right to exist.

In collaboration with the photographer Emma Svensson and the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Fotografiska launched the Icons project on World Down Syndrome day.

Icons features 21 portraits of famous icons and archetypes, imagined and beautifully captured to change how people think of the models. The 21 models have several things in common; dreams, feelings and Down's syndrome.

SeaLegacy

SeaLegacy captures endangered oceanic habitats and wildlife, and shines a spotlight on facts that do not usually get our attention: our oceans, and therefore the world as we know it, are at the limits of their resilience. SeaLegacy documents the often unseen beauty of these oceans, the dangers they face, and how they could flourish if aided by sustainable solutions.

Paul Nicklen and Cristina Mittermeier founded SeaLegacy to change the narrative around our world’s oceans and show the global community what is at stake, rally soldiers of support—and ignite real and lasting change.
