This exhibition will make a difference

It is a great pleasure and honour for us to present such a unique collection of artists that have shaped the development of photography as an art form.

The exhibition consists of approximately 180 works of photography, spanning from 1842 – 2002.

With a unique collection of original Irving Penns as a basis, the diversity of the collection is presented in a wide number of small exhibitions within the main concept. 

The possibility to make an exhibition of legendary photographers like William Henry Fox Talbot, Edward Weston, Karl Blossfeldt, Eugène Atget, August Sander, Alfred Stieglitz, Eadweard Muybridge, André Kertész, Jacques-Henri Lartigue, Édouard Boubat, Annie Leibovitz and Irving Penn, in addition to a whole range of Swedish master photographers like Hasse Persson, Patrik Andersson, Anders Kristensson and Christer Strömholm, just doesn’t happen very often in Norway!
