Fotografiska is no ordinary museum.

Fotografiska is an international meeting place where everything revolves around photography. Located in the heart of Stockholm, the museum has an exhibition space of 2,500 square meters, and features 4 major exhibitions per year and approximately 15-20 minor exhibitions. Our exhibitions are among the city’s most popular attractions. In addition to visiting our exhibitions you can listen to concerts, eat, drink, take a photography course or even arrange an event or a conference in a creative environment.

Exhibitions are the foundation of Fotografiska. Our ambition is to exhibit world-renowned photographers, many who have never been shown in Sweden, as well as those who are not yet established. Since our grand opening, May 20th 2010, we have shown legends like Annie Leibovitz and David LaChapelle as well as new photographers like Nick Brandt, Helena Blomqvist, Klara Kallstrom and Johan Wik.

We believe photography is an art form with a bright future that grows increasingly important for us humans. In addition to being a place where humans meet, we find inspiration, peace and strength from it.

One of Stockholm’s most popular attractions

Some are mysterious. Some are glamorous. Some are controversial. You wont leave them without a slightly differnt perspective than you had coming in, thats the thread that ties them all together. Fotografiska is one of Stockholm’s most popular attractions and annually attracts over 500 000 visitors.

Photographs and exhibitions are the largest part of what we offer, but we also have photography courses, lectures and workshops for both beginners and professional photographers.

At Fotografiska we have a cafe, restaurant, well stocked store and gallery of photographs for sale. Our facilities may be rented out for conferences and events. We also have concerts and artist talks on a regular basis. We have something for friends, businesses, associations, colleges, elementary schools, professionals and amateurs. Yes, we have something for everyone, the possibilities are endless.

 

Our facility

Fotografiska is housed in a former industrial Art Nouveau style building dating back to 1906. Designed by Ferdinand Boberg, the building was used for the customs control of goods and is listed as a building of cultural interest. The original brick facade of the beautiful customs building is intact, while the interior has been renovated to house the museum. The city of Stockholm has funded the 250 million crown restoration costs. Today, the entire 5,500 square meter space is filled with photographs and exhibitions from around the world.

Fotografiska For Life

Fotografiska For Life is our platform for projects that aim to raise awareness about social issues, using photography as a medium to inspire action. We show the work of the world’s foremost photographers and photojournalists in a context that generates public impact and inspires our audience to learn more about issues that are close to our heart. Seminars and talks with leading experts on the subjects that we highlight are integral parts of the projects and important forums for debate and change.
