Ingrid Nilsson


Since 2009 I am the director of the National Museum of Photography in Norway, Preus Museum. For more than twenty years she has been involved in developing and strengthening the role of photography at the museum through the collection and exhibition projects. She has also been teaching photography, analogue photography and darkroom work, reportage, the history of photography, etc.

She was a trained photographer at Nordens fotoskola in Stockholm 1983-87, a school with a documentary approach. My interest in photography started with the narrative image, which has a strong tradition in Sweden with photographers as Sune Jonsson and Christer Strömholm. She has also an education in cultural studies from the University of Lund, and have been working both as a photographer and as head of collection department at Malmö Museum, Sweden.
