The Swedish Museum of Photography

Fotografiska (The Swedish Museum of Photography) is a centre for contemporary photography in the Södermalm district of Stockholm, Sweden that opened on 21 May 2010.

It is not a museum because it has no collections, does not conduct research and is for-profit. It is not a member of either Swedish ICOM or Riksförbundet Sveriges museer.


Fotografiska has 5500 m2 of exhibition spaces, an academy, bistro, café, bar, conference rooms, museum shop, gallery, and event spaces.

Fotografiska is housed at Stadsgården, in a former customs house in the Art Nouveau styledating from 1906. Designed by Ferdinand Boberg, the building is listed as of cultural interest. The original brick facade is intact, while the interiors have been renovated to house the centre. The city of Stockholm has funded the 250 million SEK restoration costs.

Fotografiska Tallinn opened in June 2019.

Fotografiska New York opened in December 2019 at the former church mission house in Chelsea, a historical landmark building.

Fotografiska is currently developing additional locations in London.
