The Church Missions House building was built between 1892 and 1894 for the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Episcopal Church at Park Avenue and 22th Street. Later in 1963, the building was occupied by the Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies until 2015. And since the past few months it has become the house of Swedish centre for photography: Fotografiska.

Fotografiska was born in Stockholm in 2010, and in 2017 they announce a new branch in New York and will soon be opening a London branch. The New York Fotografiska offers six floors of beautiful designed interiors. The first floor houses a beautiful café and an amazing collection of photography books for sell. The second floor houses Veronica and elegant restaurant and bar. The 3 middle floor house the center’s exhibitions, which currently are: Adi New Testaments, Anastacia Taylor Lind’s Fotografiska For Life X TIME, Ellen von Unwerth 30 Years of Photographing Women, Tawny Chatmon’s Inheritance and Helene Schmitz Thinking Like a Mountain.

The curatorial work and museography of Fotografiska are amazing, the lighting highlights the photography work brilliantly, and also worth noting is the amazing branding work by BankerWessel studio, which gives the place the signature it deserves.

Fotografiska is a great contemporary addition to New York City’s cultural line up, make sure you check it out. Visit https://www.fotografiska.com/nyc/ to learn more.
