Every year Foam organises the Foam Talent Call to identify young and international talents. From a total of 1208 submissions from 67 different countries, 21 photographers were selected to be featured in the annual Foam Magazine Talent Issue. The exhibition Foam Talent, developed with work from the latest Talent Issue, brings together the work of an international young generation of artists. With their portfolios they all tell their different and personal stories. Within this exhibition Foam presents its views on the current state of photography and creates a platform that introduces emerging talents in the international world of photography.
