Fotografiska- not your ordinary Museum!
@fotografiska.ny is the internationally renowned destination for photography. Founded in Stockholm in 2010, they have expanded globally and can be found right in NYC’s Gramercy Park! I had a wonderful visit with them the other day. You know I’m all about a great gift shop and theirs does not disappoint! They are supporters of @ny_now and an experience to behold…. and I KNOW we all need a good experience these days. You should think about getting your tickets and booking a time to see for yourself!
How lucky I was to have Jenah, their Director of Retail and Suzanne the Retail Manager take me on a tour of this gorgeous, newly renovated, landmark building. From their Main Stage where they host many of their installations and programming events to their Eastern European V Bar- with a chandelier to die for (man I love a good chandelier) to their award winning restaurant Veronika that will take us on culinary journey from Paris to Budapest when they reopen…. to their extremely poignant exhibits that took me on an incredible journey of identity, feminism, heritage and experiences that shape us to Death Row exonerees to a Brooklyn vibe allowing us to evolve within it… all very different exhibits yet all holding a human commonality of endurance and perseverance… for me at least.
Fotografiska is guided by the principle of inspiring a more conscious world through the power of photography and have built a safe haven of innovation, inclusivity and self expression. The museum showcases the greatest photographers, whether they’re emerging artists or already established internationally. Their presentation of photography is powerful and unparalleled, with over 220 exhibitions to date globally, including Annie Leibovitz, Zanele Muholi, Albert Watson, Ren Hang, Sebastião Salgado, Bettina Rheims, Sally Mann, David LaChapelle, and Robert Mapplethorpe.
