Galleri Kontrast is an independent gallery in Sweden devoted to photography.
It was founded in 1996 and is situated at Hornsgatan 8 in Stockholm. The building was originally a bank in the beginning of the last century and is now a wonderful exhibition hall. The old bank vault downstairs is housing a smaller exhibition hall and the bookstore is in the room facing the street.
Galleri Kontrast has developed a reputation as one of Swedens primary venue for documentary photography. The gallery annually shows about 20 exhibitions and always The Swedish picture of the year and work from Nordens Fotoskola.
The Gallery receives funding from the daily papers Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter, Expressen, Svenska Dagbladet, the agency Scanpix, from Canon, SEB, Sveriges Tidskrifter and from Lennart Nilsson Photography and Sven Hagströmer. The Press Photographers Club in Sweden (PFK) owns the gallery and the curator is Mia Klintewall. Please do not hesitate to contact Mia for more information.
In the international market there has been, for a long time, a significant interest in investing in photography. Since 2003 Galleri Kontrast has strongly developed a presence in the sale of documentary photography.
Works are regularly shown at the gallery in the smaller exhibition space.
A wide selection of the images can also be found here on our web.
