Founded by Erna and Victor Hasselblad, today the Hasselblad Foundation is a wonderful center to visit to admire up-and-coming photographers, as well as those who are paving the way in new scientific research.
When you visit the Hasselblad Foundation you will be able to see their current exhibitions and library which contains over 16,000 photographic books and catalogs. Visitors are invited to spend time in the library and make use of the wide range of books, as well as the archive of historical material from Erna and Victor Hasselblad’s personal collection, such as cameras, photographs, manuals and more.
Please note: The library is not open all the time - you will need to book an appointment.
