A New Showcase for the World’s Best Photography

Fotografiska—a photography museum with locations in Stockholm, Sweden; and Tallinn, Estonia—has opened its newest showcase in a renovated 1894 building in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The 45,000-square-foot, six-story facility, which features the work of some of the world’s best emerging and master photographers, includes space for cultural events, a gift shop, a café, a bar, and a restaurant.

Unlike traditional museums, Fotografiska does not own collections. Instead, it develops shows in collaboration with artists and presents the work of several of them at a time on a rotating basis.

“Our exhibits hold powerful messages about sustainability, childcare, gender inequality, and more,” says Wendi Weinman, director of programming. “Through panel discussions, film screenings, concerts, and other gatherings, we hope to inspire and create a safe space where people can express themselves.”
