Fotografiska: the Scandinavian reference point for contemporary photography

By the Baltic Sea, where ferry boats dance around, this museum is dedicated to the most beautiful works in contemporary photography.

The Swedes are cultural agitators. There is no way they would allow themselves to be left out of any artistic movements going on in the world.

Opened in 2010, Fotografiska is now a Scandinavian institution in terms of images and it is the largest photography museum in the world. Black-and-white landscapes, conceptual works, fashion shots… Four or five major exhibitions are presented each year: an Annie Leibovitz retrospective, a tribute to Sebastião Salgado, a close-up look at Martin Schoeller and about 20 thematic or monographic shows. The museum has housed more than 200 exhibitions over a decade. With high-quality large prints and handsome framing, the Fotografiska is well regarded by artists and amateurs alike.

As it remains open till 11:00 p.m., Stockholmers dine early and come after to enjoy the view of the Baltic and the island of Skeppsholmen as the sun sets.
