Annie Leibovitz at Fotografiska

Finally I went to Fotografiska in Stockholm this weekend. This new photography exhibition center opened back in May 2010, but I did not manage to go any earlier.

The Annie Leibovitz exhibition “Annie Leibovitz, A Photographer’s Life 1990 – 2005” is absolutely amazing and truly inspiring. It is moving to see how her private work is blended with her professional work.

The exhibition will continue until September 19, 2010 so if you happen to be in Stockholm take your chance and go visit Fotografiska!

Additional photographers who are exhibited at Fotografiska (until September 5, 2010) are Vee Speers, Lennart Nilsson and Anders Petersen.

The PGB Photo Award

The PGB (Photographers Giving Back) Photo Award exhibition is shown in Stockholm’s Konserthus.

The Photographers Giving Back Photo Award was founded in Sweden in 2008. The purpose of this event is to enhance journalistic photography and to strengthen the position for the professional photographer. It is also intended to inspire young and new photographers and get more people interested in photography. The winning pictures are very strong photos from our sometimes brutal reality.

Opening hours are from 11:00 till 17:00 at Hötorget 8 in Stockholm. The exhibition is available until August 29th, 2009.
