As capital of an art-savvy country, keen on recycling and charmed by the honest beauty of nature, there’s little surprise on Stockholm’s first photography museum to soon open its doors in a coastal location, with a privileged city view.

The pictures already hang on the red-bricked walls of the old customs house. A stake of southern Stockholm, Stadgårdskajen Stora Tullhus, offers 4000m2 as an excellent platform for the council’s purposes. Fotografiska Museet’s aim is to move beyond the traditional museum concept, to become an international exchange trading spot with photographic expressions as the contemporaneous deal.

Do not miss the Annie Leibovitz first solo exhibition in Sweden: 190 iconic images or 15 years, as seen through her lenses.
