The Foto Sessions

The doors to the museum may be temporarily closed, but our community has shown us the spirit of Fotografiska lives far beyond our walls. We’ve seen the power of photography bring us together and provoke new perspectives to propel us forward.

We’re introducing The Foto Sessions as a way to bring our museum to you while you’re at home. In this online destination, we’ll be hosting artists talks, posting virtual galleries, and telling stories that bring you deep into the imaginations of our photographers. We’ll be releasing new content each week, featuring exclusives with some of the world’s most admired artists.

Stay tuned and sign up for our newsletter. Tell us what’s on your mind and how we can help keep you inspired and connected, at [email protected] and follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

Fotographers (in) Focus

Introducing Fotographers (in) Focus, featuring the photographers currently exhibiting in our museum.

We’re flipping the camera on our photographers - framing them as the subjects that provoke and sustain our creative curiosity while the museum doors are temporarily closed. We’ve invited our photographers to share more about their work or tell us how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting their lives while in isolation.
