Tomorrow I’m proud to be attending the vernissage at Fotografiska for the photography contest held by Mitt i and Fotografiska museum called “Mitt Sthlm (My Stockholm)”. One of my photographs is among the 300 out of the 4000 images that will be on display in the exhibition between 7:th of december and New Years Eve.
If you are in Stockholm, Fotografiska is one stop you need to have of you list of things to do.
From wikipedia about Fotografiska:
Photographic Museum in Stockholm is with its 2500 square meters exhibition area one of the world’s largest collection of locations for photography. A total of premises on more than 5000 square meters. Good-sized conference rooms, open space areas for spontaneous meetings and the extensive schedule of speakers and exhibitors will ensure an interesting time for photography in Stockholm.
Anne Leibovitz, which was the opening speaker talked about the great interest against Sweden, Stockholm and Photographic Museum from including New York and London photography collective before the opening of this new Swedish National Museum of Photography.
Brothers Jan and Per Broman is the initiator and founder of the museum. One of their goals is that within five years to establish Photographic Museum in Stockholm as one of the main meeting places for photography in the world for this new art form.
A significant part of the activities will be directed to disseminate and expand knowledge on how to best utilize his camera. There will be courses for everyone from children with there first camera to the current professional photographers. Another interesting activity is the so-called portfolio reviews. At one such review a predetermined number of photographs, through calls with the help of words, with a known authority in the field. One could for example choose to take their own pictures to get new insights into their own photography.
