This spacious airy gallery houses painstakingly-curated and frequently-changing exhibitions, inside an imposing red-brick former customs building. Recent collections by the likes of celebrity snapper Martin Schoeller, jungle animal lover Nick Brandt and rock-star-turned photographer Bryan Adams have served to impress local shutterbugs. The well-written exhibition guides are a welcome addition for novice photography fans. On the ground floor, the backroom exhibition is easily missed, but this wing frequently contains memorable and sometimes tear-jerking photojournalism, from clandestine images of war to celebrations of joy in the everyday. When you’ve had enough culture, head upstairs to the achingly stylish bar and café area, which serves overpriced but very tasty snacks, fantastic coffee and a strong selection of quality wines. It’s open until 1pm Thursday to Sunday and 11pm during the rest of the week.

Time Out tip: Jostle your way into a window seat in Fotografiska’s café for stunning panoramic views over Stockholm’s Old Town and Djurgården’s historic themepark Gröna Lund, open since 1883.
