Taken during the 2019 FIFA World Cup Qualifier in Tehran, Iran, this photo captures the first time, since 1980, Iranian women were allowed to watch football in the same stadium as men. This was a historic moment for Iranian women and very personal for photographer Maryam Majd @mariam_majdd, a sports photographer and long-time advocate for women’s rights. Visit us at Fotografiska New York to view the top 10 finalists in The 2020 Global Prize Installation on view through January 24th, 2020.

@photography4humanity is an international initiative that calls on photographers around the world to bring the power of human rights to life through their images. The 2020 Global Prize Installation is currently on view at Fotografiska New York through January 24th, 2020. Our hope is that these images will inspire more photographers to document human rights issues around the world, and inspire all of us to personally take a stand against human rights violations. Following the month-long installation, the images will move on to be showcased globally via a virtual exhibit by the United Nations. ["Heroes 3", January 2020, Image Courtesy: Emeke Obanor]

Since we opened our doors in December 2019, we've used the power of photography to communicate important ideas and to turn people's attention to what they otherwise might ignore. Starting in June, we shared our platform with photographers who were on the frontlines—on the frontlines calling for justice for the murder of George Floyd and an end to poilice brutality, on the frontlines for the ongoing battle against COVID-19, and on the frontlines of climate change. Photographers @meldcole, @stevesweatpants, @coco.butter.shutter, @themunamalik, @simbarashecha, @darrellbooker, @timothyfadek, @alexkrowiak, @flongala shared their unfiltered voices, honest perspectives and impactful images on our social media platform. We're grateful for their participation in Photographers on The Frontlines and inspired by their bravery.

As we continue to look back at the past year since Fotografiska New York opened, we reflect on when "normal" life was first put on hold. Our circumstances required us to distance ourselves, to isolate from one another, to stop motion. At Fotografiska we believe in the power of photography to help us generate and nourish human connection. Through an initiative titled "Stop Motion," we called upon our community to help create a series of progressive photographs, documenting their experiences and emotions throughout this period of time when the world around us was put on a pause. We were overwhelmed with the fervor of our community's responses. Click the link in bio to view a collection of Stop Motion submissions.

Since our opening in December of 2019, the last twelve months have been anything but ordinary. When the world paused and many of us found ourselves at home, we created The Foto Sessions; a new digital exhibition space created to showcase incredible photography. In light of COVID-19 events, the museum temporarily closed its doors, but we wanted to continue to spotlight both aspiring and accomplished photographers via this online destination. The content hub has featured virtual galleries, artist interviews and profiles, audio recordings from previous live events, and community photography submissions, all designed to bring the museum and its signature programming into living rooms across the globe.

The celebration of our one year anniversary continues as we reflect upon a year of programming. The events program at Fotografiska New York is designed to create moments with the community, provide a space for self-expression, and explore themes central to the exhibitions on view. Throughout the year we've held photography walks, meditation sessions, game nights, panel discussions, film screenings, family portrait sessions, book talks, family fun days, and herbal medicine workshops—to name a few. What would you like to experience next year? #fotoanniversary

As we continue to celebrate our one year anniversary, we take a look back at some of our installation highlights. Our first installation at Fotografiska New York kicked off with "Amplifier" by @dannyclinch which included a performance with @lucindawilliams. Since then, we've continued to show inspiring and captivating work ranging from @josepharthur who moved (yes, he literally moved in!) into our sixth-floor for "Inhabiting"; @jimmarshall's "Show Me The Picture, @arielandsamsoto's "Disrupting Fatherhood", "ROAR: A Celebration of Protest Moments" by @ginnysuss @kishabari @tish_lambert_org, @aperture's Summer Open, and "Persist, Insist" by @larryfinkphoto. We can't wait to show you what's next. #fotoanniversary.

Join us as we take a look back at our opening exhibitions in this week's celebration of our one year anniversary. "Our first exhibitions will be referenced for years to come, and we wanted to start with a strong point of view,” said Amanda Hajjar, Director of Exhibitions for Fotografiska New York, “We wanted to challenge both our guests' perspectives and the traditional ideas of what can and should be shown within a museum-like setting.” Fotografiska New York's inaugural exhibitions featured @tawnychatmon, @ellenvonunwerth, @heleneschmitz @adi.nes.official, and Fotografiska For Life's debut exhibition in partnership with @time featuring @anastasiatl. #fotoanniversary

Next up in artist @florencemontmare’s weekly series is Interiors.

This chapter is about a search for home and feelings of solitude. In the emptiness and silence of the Island, there are “rooms" inside the landscape.

"We feel inspired by Studio Coppre’s copper carafes, designed by Milan-based Riccardo Giovanetti + Pune-based SĀR, handcrafted by artisans from Maharashtra, India. These drinking vessels imbue water with copper mineralization, Tamrajalas, offering ayurvedic healing properties. A wonderful collaboration between cultures, celebrating design and traditional craft, advocating health benefits, working with and helping local artisans, all these aspects make this product not just desirable but also into a symbol of respect and appreciation".— Cooper & Gorfer.

Return of the Repressed:How and Why We Need to Look at Historical Racist Images Today

Tensions over race and racism are impacting every sphere of life in the United States. It is at this crucial moment that Andres Serrano is confronting us with some of the most shameful and painful racist images of the nation’s past. What does it mean to show these images of banal products decorated with racist caricature? And, specifically, to show them today?

In conversation with the artist, Svetlana Mintcheva, Director of Programs at the National Coalition Against Censorship, suggests that the display of these images may function in much the same way as recent protests: as an eruption of long suppressed anger and anguish. Disturbing as it is, looking at these images may constitute part of a healing process where the American historical narrative comes to include, openly, its cruel violence alongside its proud achievements.

Watch the conversation here.
