The Home of Photography in Scandinavia
Landskrona Foto is the collective name for a center for the photographic image that spans areas such as exhibitions, events, photo history, photo books, residency, research, and collections. The most important element, the one we call ‘The highlight of Photography’ is our festival where the love of photography, dedication, and commitment to Landskrona as the meeting place of photography reaches its crescendo.
Our vision is to be Europe’s most relevant meeting place for photography – where the established and the experimental meet and stimulate the public’s understanding of photography and its value to society.
The principal for the activity is the cultural board of Landskrona Stad, which has a permanent grant in the budget for the financial funding. In addition to that, we are receiving contributions from regional, national and Nordic cultural organizations. We are also generously supported by many companies who have an interest in the activity and in Landskrona.
The politically targeted goal setting is that Landskrona Foto shall have such a quality and a width in the activity so that Landskrona can declare themselves of being The Home of Photography in Scandinavia.
