Visit Fotografiska New York
Fotografiska New York is located in the Flatiron district at 281 Park Avenue South at 22nd Street, near Union Square and Madison Square Park, and easily accessible through public transportation.
The Museum is the NYC location of the renowned Stockholm-based destination for the world’s best photography. Founded in 2010, brothers Jan and Per Broman built the concept of Fotografiska on the foundation of photography as a haven for innovation, inclusivity and free expression.
Our goal is to inspire a more conscious world through the art of photography. We showcase the greatest photographers, whether they’re emerging artists or already established internationally.
Our building is a registered landmark built in 1894 and originally named “The Church Mission Building”. We’ve renovated this iconic jewel so that you can experience a dynamic mix of world-class art, cultural events and retail alongside epicurean dining created by the award-winning STARR Restaurants and design studio Roman & Williams.
We are open 363 days each year, closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Jan and Per Broman explain, “We had been working with fairs and smaller exhibitions when we decided to put all our faith and money and what little prestige we had into a giant exhibition in a conference hall outside Stockholm. A few months later, the walls of the hall were full of the most colorful photography you can imagine. People from all over Stockholm traveled to the awkward address, and the newspapers were reporting that the event was the talk of the town. From that moment we were sure that would work on a larger scale, and we started to plan a permanent space for photography - a museum that would be owned without any governmental support.”
The concept of Fotografiska was received with wide acclaim, and after operating successfully for eight years, Jan and Per Broman are taking the concept global - first opening in Tallinn, Estonia in June 2019 and now in New York City.
