On February 11, Hall of Femmes and the Swedish Institute are organizing The Idea of Reality: Views on Fashion Photography, a seminar at Aperture Gallery to coincide with New York Fashion Week.

The seminar is being held in connection with the opening of Different Distances, a group exhibition with renowned Swedish fashion photographers Denise Grünstein, Martina Hoogland Ivanow, Julia Hetta, Julia Peirone, and Elisabeth Toll. The exhibition is curated by Greger Ulf Nilson.

Hall of Femmes has put together a program in which two photographers from different generations meet: Denise Grünstein, one of Sweden’s best known photographers, and Sophie Mörner, a photographer and editor living in New York, both with experience of editorial work, and both with experience of creating their own artistic projects.
