Posted 4 days ago


Anything but an ordinary museum, in 2010 Fotografiska was founded in Stockholm and in late 2019 opened its newest outpost in a treasured, historic landmark building in NYCs Flatiron District. The iconic NYC and Stockholm locations are complemented by expansion in Tallinn, and a forthcoming Berlin Museum set to open in 2022. Fotografiskas goals are simple: to inspire a more conscious world through the power of photography, to bring people together, raise awareness and create positive change. The Museum showcases the greatest photographers, whether they are emerging artists or already established internationally.

Located at 281 Park Avenue South, the six-floor, 45,000 sq ft (about half the area of a Manhattan city block). historic landmark is home to an unexpected mix of world-class art, vibrant cultural programming, and exceptional dining experiences.
