The Hasselblad Foundation possesses a large and still growing photographic collection. Our focus has been on works by the Hasselblad Award winners and Nordic photographers and artists, but we also have works by many international photographers. We are updating our image database. The photographic collection will soon be searchable online again. (If an image is missing, the sign HS is shown when the artist has not given permission to show the work, or we have not been able to contact the artist, or the work has not yet been photographed.)
Most of the Hasselblad Award winners, including Lennart Nilsson, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Josef Koudelka, Robert Frank, Christer Strömholm, Wlliam Eggleston, Lee Friedlander, David Goldblatt, and Nan Goldin are represented in the collection.
The collection also contains works by Pernilla Zetterman, Hyun-Jin Kwak, and Daniel Andersson, all of whom have received the prestigious "Victor stipend".
The largest individual grouping within the collection consists of images by South African photographer Ernest Coles.
Swedish photographers with extensive representation in the collection houses are Kerstin Bernhard, Yngve Baum, Miriam Bäckström, Sven Gillsäter, Hans Hammarskiöld, Stig T. Karlsson, the "Lima photographers", Hans Malmberg, Susann Moritz, Per L-B Nilsson, Pål-Nils Nilsson, Lennart Olson, Anders Petersen, Lars Tunbjörk, Lars Wallsten, and Rolf Winqvist.
