To See: Fotografiska Museum

Stockholm, Sweden’s capital, and often endearingly referred to as Scandinavia’s capital. The city boosts design, fashion and art. Since November David LaChapelle has an exhibition named Burning Beauty in the entire Fotografiska Museum at the riverbanks of Stockholm. Perfect for a slow Sunday, and the museum has a nice café with a view of the city, so you can even have some chill-time afterwards.

LaChapelle’s pictures range from high fashion and Hollywood to everyday life. As he grew bigger as an artist and had the opportunity to fund art projects himself, his later work mostly covers consumerism and social paradoxes. He often highlights his critical view on mass-consumption, gun-policies in the USA and the glorification of celebrities. For art- and photography lovers, the exhibition is considered a must see. I mostly think it’s also very recognizable and a diverse exhibition covering the influences of modern day. On your next trip to Stockholm, be sure to check it out, it’s worth the 80Kr !

The exhibition will be available to see until the 3th of March. The museum is open every day from 9AM to 9PM, and on the weekends it’s open until 11PM. On sunday’s there is a lovely brunch in the cafe, with free entrance to the museum upon reservation
