Book presentation Zindzi Zwietering Bron

Foam Editions is happy to welcome you to the festive book presentation of Bron, a photo book made by Zindzi Zwietering, on Thursday 13 October at Foam's in-house gallery. During this event, we will present an exclusive and limited special edition of this book.

About the book

Bron reflects on South Africa’s water crisis and questions how urban citizens relate to a changing Earth. An Earth on which a quarter of the world population deals with extreme shortages. We are highly dependent on natural resources, but they have become more and more invisible to citizens of urban areas. How can we as a society really comprehend the significance of the situation as long as there is still water flowing from our taps?

Bron investigates the human perspective, not only on one country but also on a world exposed to climate crisis. Zwietering brings to life how invisible phenomena increasingly shape our daily lives. She renders the abstract clear and brings the hidden into focus.

The special edition consists of a book and a small print made in a limited edition. The book and special edition will be presented during a Q&A with Zindzi.
