Welcome to Fotografiska

About Fotografiska

Välkommen – Welcome!

Fotografiska is the internationally renowned destination for photography, founded in Stockholm in 2010 and expanding globally – first to Tallinn, Estonia, and now to New York City.

Guided by the principle of inspiring a more conscious world through the power of photography, Fotografiska has built a safe haven of innovation, inclusivity and self expression.

The museum showcases the greatest photographers, whether they’re emerging artists or already established internationally. The presentation of photography is powerful and unparalleled, with over 220 exhibitions to date globally, including Annie Leibovitz, Zanele Muholi, Albert Watson, Ren Hang, Sebastião Salgado, Bettina Rheims, Sally Mann, David LaChapelle, and Robert Mapplethorpe.

Fotografiska New York

Located at 281 Park Avenue South, the six-floor, 45,000 sq ft. historic landmark is home to an unexpected mix of world-class art, vibrant cultural programming, and exceptional dining experiences. The restaurant, Verōnika, and cocktail lounge, V Bar, are operated by award-winning STARR Restaurants and designed by Roman and Williams (currently closed, re-opening date to be announced in accordance with city and state regulations).

The New York location opened in December 2019 with work from Ellen von Unwerth, Tawny Chatmon, Helene Schmitz, Adi Nes, and Anastasia Taylor-Lind in partnership with TIME Magazine.

Fotografiska is anything but an ordinary museum. There is no permanent collection, and none of the work is for sale. Due to this unique model, Fotografiska is able to respond quickly to ever-changing societal issues, movements and themes, which is reflected in the immersive, representative, and relevant exhibitions.
