Acclaimed Swedish Chef, cookbook author and photographer, Magnus Nilsson will present an exhibition of his photography at the Swedish American Museum. The large-scale photographs of the Nordic countries, as well as Greenland and the Faroe Islands are drawn from his three year research and over 8000 photos for “The Nordic Cookbook” which includes over 700 recipes. This exhibit invites visitors to discover food as means for sharing heritage and culture.

This exhibit at the Swedish American Museum is made possible by the support of SWEA Chicago, the Swedish Council of America and the MacArthur Fund for Arts and Culture at Prince.

This exhibition project was originally produced by the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis, with support from the Anne Ray Charitable Trust, Barbro Osher Pro Sucia Foundation, and Karin Larson. The catalogue was supported by a generous gift from Chuck and Jill Koosmann.
