Strömholm Collection
On July 1, 2016 what could be Stockholm’s smallest museum opens at Mindepartementet; a permanent place for the work of the legendary Swedish photographer Christer Strömholm. Strömholm Collection is a collaboration with Bildverksamheten Strömholm and the intention is to provide new perspectives on Christer Strömholm’s photographic work. Strömholm’s own, lesser-known photographs, as well as parts of his private collection, will be presented. In the shop you can find wide range of articles with a connection to Christer Strömholm and his work such as postcards, books, posters and photography.

Christer Strömholm is one of Sweden’s foremost and internationally most recognized photographers. He was born in 1918 in Stockholm and died in 2002 after a life on the move. Strömholm worked almost exclusively in black-and-white. His documentation of and books about the transsexual friends at Place Blanche in 1960s Paris have become classics. Strömholm’s breakthrough, however, only came in 1986 with the exhibition 9 sekunder av mitt liv (9 Seconds of My Life) at Moderna Museet. He was appointed Professor of Photography in 1993 and received the Hasselblad Award in 1998. His images and working methods have inspired generations of Swedish photographers and today Strömholm’s work is represented in some of the world’s leading museums, such as the MoMA, the Metropolitan Art Museum, and the ICP in New York, and Centre Pompidou in Paris.
