About the Museum

In eight short years, Fotografiska has established itself as a haven of innovation and free expression. Their presentation of photography is powerful and unparalleled, and includes over 200 exhibitions to date, such as David LaChapelle, Annie Leibovitz, Albert Watson, Sally Mann, Zanele Muholi, Cooper & Gorfer, Ren Hang, and Irving Penn.

Fotografiska is neither museum nor gallery. They pride themselves in showcasing a diverse range of artists, perspectives, and photographic mediums. Rising stars are displayed next to icons. Styles range across abstract, landscape, portrait, documentary and more. All that matters is the communicative power of the image. Fotografiska aims to inspire a more conscious world though the power of photography. The spirit of Fotografiska exhibitions embody values of relevance, inclusion, sustainability, innovation, and inspiration. Through these pillars, they challenge viewers to look beyond the photo.

The new space at 281 Park Avenue South is a six-floor, 45,000 sq ft. historic landmarked building, originally constructed in 1894. The building will feature three floors of exhibitions spaces, bespoke retail and culinary experiences, and a dedicated private event space. Award-winning architecture and interior design firm CetraRuddy is leading the design and renovation of Fotografiska NYC. Esteemed design studio Roman and Williams will develop the interior concept for the second-floor restaurant and speakeasy lounge annex.
