In the Södermalm area of Stockholm, a special place called Fotografiska thrives. It brings together photography, art, and culture, creating a source of inspiration. Fotografiska, a modern photography center, has been capturing feelings and stories since it started in 2010. It’s located in an old customs house with a unique Art Nouveau design from 1906. Designed by Ferdinand Boberg, this building is officially considered culturally important.

Fotografiska is a modern photography center in Stockholm, started by brothers Jan and Per Broman on May 21, 2010. In March 2021, it joined with NeueHouse and is run by Yoram Roth and Josh Wyatt, part of the CultureWorks company.

What makes Fotografiska special is its refusal to be like a traditional museum or gallery. Instead of permanent displays or selling art, its goal is to inspire, entertain, and make a lasting impact. Fotografiska believes that through photography, we feel emotions, tell stories, and make changes.

„Photography is for everyone,“ says a Fotografiska representative. „It can bring people together and tell stories that touch us all. Our goal is to provide a space without limits for creativity and art.“

The museum, spread across 2,500 square meters, is more than just a place; it’s an experience. You can enjoy an amazing view of Stockholm’s skyline from the café and savor delicious food in the restaurant. The gallery and souvenir shop make your visit even more immersive, letting you dive deep into the world of art.

When the sun sets, Fotografiska comes to life with events all year round. Live performances and concerts turn the museum into a vibrant hub, bringing people together through music.

Fotografiska’s impact is felt not only through its exhibitions but also in the city itself. Over the years, it has become very popular, attracting both locals and tourists.

So, whether you’re enjoying a cup of coffee with a city view or getting lost in the emotions of photography, Fotografiska offers an experience that goes beyond what you see. It’s proof that art knows no limits, and through photography, a whole world of feelings comes alive.

Fotografiska didn’t stop there; it expanded to other cities too, like Berlin, New York, Tallinn, and Shanghai, with its network of photographic museums.

According to Yoram Roth, the executive chairman of Fotografiska’s parent company CultureWorks, „Fotografiska was always meant to be a welcoming place for anyone interested in culture. We bring hospitality and community into the experience, knowing that these feelings of connection and inspiration through photography can be understood all around the world.“
