Skreid Publishing is a newly started independent publishing house, specializing in art photography. Skreid Publishing is based in the Nordic region, while collaborating with established international publishers with distribution outside of Scandinavia. By limiting our work to the Nordic countries we use platforms where we ourselves are established. Our purpose is to promote and spread Nordic photography across the Nordic boarders as well as cooperate with international publishers for a wider distribution.
Skreid Publishing was established in May 2016.The first two titles were released in September 2016. Both books are published in two editions – one English and one Swedish in collaboration with the German publishing house Kerber Verlag. In Stockholm, Centrum för Fotografi as a partner for releases, talks and presentations. Our ambassador in Denmark is Jens Friis, the publisher of the Nordic photo magazine Katalog.
