Issue #17 / Portrait?
In this issue of Foam Magazine, attention is focused on recent
work that offers unique interpretations of the idea of the
photographic portrait. Under the title 'Portrait?' we present six
portfolios of photographic work that together can be regarded as a
study of possibilities of giving a new direction to the classic
portrait. It is not a confirmation or continuation of established
forms of portrait photography, but an implicit questioning of the
genre in which the furthest ends of the spectrum are consciously
sought. No well-trodden paths, but an open, critical and, we hope,
inspiring approach to the photographic portrait.
