About 50 photographers with coveted exciting works will be on show. Everything from well-known names like Christer Strömholm, Noboyushi Araki, Helene Schmitz, Frank Horvat, Chen Man, Nick Brandt, Camilla Åkrans and Albert Watson to exciting new talents already receiving lively acclaim including Bastiaan Woudt and Inka&Niclas.

Haute Photographie Stockholm at Fotografiska is making a very real contribution in this respect,’ says Roy Kahmann, Gallery Owner and Project Manager, who is heading up the initiative.
‘We are really looking forward to Haute coming to Stockholm.

Facts Haute Photographie:
Haute PhotographieHaute Photographie is an international photography fair with a refreshing take on the fair format. Initiated by Roy Kahmann, director of Kahmann Gallery, publisher of GUP Magazine and a long-term advocate of photography in the Netherlands, Haute was officially launched as part of Art Rotterdam Week in February 2017. The fair takes a carefully curated exhibition as its starting point, which provides a fascinating look at photography as a fine art medium. Accompanied by a focus exhibition on young Dutch photography talent, a public programme in association with Nederlands Fotomuseum, a book market in collaboration with Artibooks and more, Haute has become a must visit during Rotterdam Art Week, one of the key events in contemporary art in the Netherlands. The first international location of Haute Photographie is Stockholm, with further expansion being worked on.
Fotografiska Stockholm is not only the world’s most esteemed museum dedicated to the world of photography. The concept also contains an internationally awarded restaurant elected “the Museum Restaurant of the Year 2017”, as well as inspiring event spaces, an acclaimed academy and a shop featuring an extensive selection of photographic books. With a great network of world-class photographers at the core, Fotografiska Stockholm has since the opening hosted more than 170 exhibitions, including the work of iconic masters such as Annie Leibovitz, David LaChapelle, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton, Sarah Moon, Nick Brandt and Andres Serrano, as well as up-and-coming young photographers. By taking a stand in controversial issues and stretching their responsibility far beyond the realm of traditional art institutions, Fotografiska has a history of acting as an influencer, playing an active role in the Swedish society. The purpose is simple, to use the power of photography to unite, spread awareness and create positive impact.
Initially opened in Stockholm in 2010 the Fotografiska family is now growing and therefore they proudly announce that they are expanding to Whitechapel in London and Park Avenue in New York. Taking on these prime locations Fotografiska aims to redefine the traditional museum experience by creating urban meeting places where global citizens are invited to dwell, get inspired, question the taken-for-granted and grow as individuals.
