Fotografiska was founded in Stockholm, Sweden, in 2010. The goal behind the museum is to create an atmosphere that builds a community around the concept of photography. As of December 2019, Fotografiska has a second home, based in New York City. The space is a lifestyle experience, incorporating exhibition, dining (“Veronika” designed by Roman and Williams), retail, event/workshop programming, artist talks, and nightlife. Each floor showcases a different artist, creating an experience that reflects the work on hand. For the opening lineup, featured photographers are Ellen von Unwerth, Tawny Chatmon, Helene Schmitz, and Adi Nes.
