The Anonymous Widower

Fotografiska

Fotografiska is Stockholm’s photographic museum. I like photography so I walked there from the station at Slussen. I must admit, I was drawn there by the adverts for a Helmut Newton exhibition all over the city.

Unfortunately, the city built a motorway, between the museum and the cliff face behind, so there are no buses.  One of the staff told me, that the city is redeveloping the area and hasn’t made up its mind about the transport in the area.

The various exhibits were fascinating, but the Helmut Newton exhibition also included some portraits of the famous, including a striking one of Margaret Thatcher, which is shown here. I also like this quote from Helmut Newton.

Nothing has been retouched, nothing electronically altered. I photographed what I saw.

It is a good rule for a photographer, that they shouldn’t break.

There was also a restaurant with views across the city on the top floor.  If I’d had more time, I’d have had lunch!
