Windows of the Northern Star – part 2

Part 2 of my Stockholm Tips includes Photography and Fashion in Stockholm

Svenska Fotografiska Museet AB
Definitely the most impressive Photography Museum I ever visited, and if you are a frequent reader of my blogs you might know that I have a thing for photography. The main reason to visit the location was the current exhibition
Northern Women in CHANEL
by Peter Farago & Ingela Klemetz-Farago, but I experienced a lot more like the series of images entitled ‘Hiding in the City’ by  Liu Bolin:
The Invisible Man, besides the extensive retrospective of Mapplethorpe’s work with approximately 200 prints and the wok of Jacob Felländer, which was completely new to me. ‘I Want To Live Close To You‘  shows the result of a trip made in 12 days with stops in Stockholm, New York, L.A., Hong Kong, Bombay, Dubai, Paris and back to Stockholm. A photographic experiment with the intent of capturing the whole world on one negative. The whole world in one image.
Located inside Stora Tullhuset, on the docks of Stadsgården in Stockholm. The building was built in 1906-1910, based on the blueprint of architect Ferdinand Boberg. The red brick facade is culturally preserved. So please take an extra look at the exterior before you enter our halls.
