Main Gallery

The Møller collection contains a wide range of photography, covering over 170 years and providing insight into the history of photography, from its infancy to popular culture's embrace of the medium.

The Collection consists of iconic images and unknown works by Norwegian and international photographers. The photos tell stories about the significant events and people who have shaped our time, but also about forgotten moments, anonymous passers-by, and of nature’s subtle changes. The collection touches on almost the entire history of photography, without being representative of it. The Møller collection has been created over many years, based on personal interest and a broad engagement to photography as art and its significance as a medium of communication in our time.

The exhibition is divided into eight genre-based themes: Documentary, Exclusion, Portrait, Nature, Architecture, Fashion, Experiments and Contemporary Art.
