As the first comprehensive study of the contemporary Scandinavian photography scene, this book documents the shift in Scandinavian photography away from a documentary practice and towards a fine art discourse. Since the late 1980s, Scandinavian photography has evolved into an internationally recognised art scene, with the past two decades seeing a transition away from traditional photojournalism.

Focusing on the last ten years, and produced in collaboration with MELK, New Scandinavian Photography highlights the work produced by a diverse range of artists who are exploring and manipulating the use of photography in their practices and explores the medium through academic texts and interviews, addressing the technical and material properties of photography in the context of fine art and pan-media practice, with a focus on the exhibition room as well as printed matter.

Through critical examination and personal interviews, the book showcases established names in the photographic art scene such as Asger Carlsen and Emil Salto, along with emerging talents that include Mårten Lange and Marthe Elise Stramrud. A key focus is placed upon artists' use of photography as a medium, along with their methods of presentation, from the white cube gallery space to intimate printed matter.
