Fotografiska or the Swedish Museum of Photography is very well set up. We were very dissappointed not to have managed to see the ePic Moments exhibition about the 100years since the Olympic Games were held in Stockholm. It had closed the previous day. Instead we paid to see the Sally Mann-A Matter of Time Exhibition. No matter how hard we tried we just could not enjoy this exhibition which is mostly about decomposing bodies with intimate and graphic images. We then went to the Art Nouveau building to the top floor cafe. Hear the delicious pastries and panoramic views of Stockholm helped to change the mood. I have given an average rating because of the exhibition, the museum and set up are great.

The building location is scenic. The Bombay photo exhibit was emotional. The photographer made you feel like you were actually on the streets of Bombay. The way the exhibit is set up and the actual photos are presented well.

We walked all the way here from Strandgarten and it was really worth it. We were lucky enough to view the Helmut Newton exhibition which was really fabulous. The exhibition about Bombay was also very moving. The view from the bistro is amazing - we had a light dinner there and it was very nice too.

Yes it's a bit hard to find this place but the Djurgarden ferry stops right outside, every other sailing, and the trip is worth it. There's a fabulous Helmut Newton retrospective on until September, and make sure you watch the film by his wife June. I'd suggest watching it before looking at the exhibition. It's quite long (45mins?) but gives such an insight into the man and his passion for photography. I saw his photographs in a whole new light - seeing the humour of the 'naughty boy' as June describes him.

What may be the largest exhibit of Newton's phohtographs is also a fascinating history of this groundbreaking, controversial and innovative fashion photographer, who at time even called himself a pronographer. It was assembled with assistance from his widow, June.
