Fotografiska is no ordinary museum. It is an international meeting place where everything revolves around photography. Located in the heart of Stockholm, the museum has an exhibition space of 2,500 square meters, and features 4 major exhibitions per year and approximately 15-20 minor exhibitions. I have dropped by Fotografiska during the weekend, on Saturday for brunch and also to check the latest exhibitions. I was positively surprised to see "The image of Garbo" - one of the most famous actress in the history and Bryan Adams photo exhibition - yes, that's right, the singer.
Fotografiska is a must-visit place on the map of Stockholm by all the travellers and inhabitants, not only for the reason of exhibitions. The place is located by the water in the heart of the city, where many boats are passing by and where you can catch a boat for example to Finland from there, and where you can really enjoy one of the most beautiful panoramic views in Stockholm. On the other side of the water you can see the huge lunapark for children and adults where the adrenaline goes up only from watching it from a distance. The place is surrounded by several café bars outside the building where you can trickle a chilled lemonade in a shadow or a heat of the sun. On the level three, inside, there is a cozy café bar available only for visitors of exhibition where you can enjoy before or after your tour a tasty shrimp salad or a sandwich with the view of old town and the other part of Stockholm.
Opening hours are very convenient, so much that you can still go there today on Sunday, and see the art until 1 o'clock at night. See the full opening hours here. The ticket for adult costs SEK120, and students SEK90.
The exhibition made a huge impact on me and whenever I am there, I feel like coming back again very soon. Many of you know from your younger years Byan Adams and his unbeatable song "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You", but not many of you knew that Bryan is also a great Hollywood-stars' photographer. His photos are absolutely stunning! Here's a sneak peek of his work. Look at a couple of pictures we took...
Really impressing, right? But this is just an aperitif. The other ehxibition I really loved was "The image of Garbo" - showing the life and the career of Greta Garbo. I am a big fan of a good photography and always liked to photograph myself. Looking at Greta's face from different stages of her life was a big pleasure for my eyes.
Fotografiska isn’t just about photography. Photographs and exhibitions are the largest part of what they offer, but there are also photography courses, lectures and workshops for both beginners and professional photographers. At Fotografiska you can find a cafe, restaurant, well stocked store and gallery of photographs for sale. You can attend a concert or artist talks there, rent for an event or conference. "We have something for friends, businesses, associations, colleges, elementary schools, professionals and amateurs. Yes, we have something for everyone, the possibilities are endless" - says Fotografiska.
The best came at the end. After my galery tour I had a fantastic shrimp salad in the café bar with the most amazing view in Stockholm.
The view from the window of café. Always keeping my favourite lip balm with me.

This is how I look when I feel happy...
Yesterday I visited couple of friends at Fitness Galan, checked up the latest trends and news on the supplements and nutrition shelf. Naturalbox was participating in the event as an exhibitor one year ago and this year we were just visitors. I found two interesting products but I wish there were more 100% natural stuff without any additives. Anyway, the day was inspiring and exciting. We were also cheering for our friend Tommy who was competing in classic body building. Look at the photo relation from the fair.
Enjoy your Sunday!
