Foam Talent is back again in London – this year the hugely popular exhibition launches in tandem with Photo London 2017! Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall is proud to host Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam again, as the Dutch museum of Photography presents its views on the current state of photography.
Foam Talent is an annual group exhibition that brings together innovative image makers under the age of 35. This year twenty four young photographers will tour internationally – and it is the second time that Foam brings its selection of Foam Talents to London.
Every year Foam organises the Foam Talent Call to identify young and international talents. From a total of 1494 submissions from 75 different countries across 6 continents, 24 photographers were selected to be featured in the 2017 Foam Magazine Talent Issue. Foam Talent is developed from photos featured in the latest Talent Issue, installing together the work of a new generation of young artists.
Photo-objects, discrete installations, beamers, lightboxes and wallpapers – Foam Talent, exceeds expectations of a classic photography exhibition. Conceptual approaches contrast with the documentary, with content ranging from the mythical favelas of Rio de Janeiro by Stefanie Moshammer, the colourful photographic constructions of Nico Krijno or the chemical experiments on film by Daisuke Yokota in which the camera becomes irrelevant. In a presentation of more than 100 photographs Foam Talent reflects the diversity of creative approach that marks recent developments in the medium. With this exhibition Foam creates a platform on which to introduce emerging talents in the international world of photography.
