Coinciding with Photo London, the captivating and imaginative installation presents a forward-thinking showcase of photography. Selected through the annual Foam Talent Call, the 20 emerging artists featured in the exhibition are exceptionally placed to share their insight into the state of contemporary photography. They cross the borders of the medium with remarkable ease, focusing on the cycle of time, on socio-political factors and on our everyday life. These artists show us how essential it is to possess and demonstrate authenticity, intrinsic quality and the visual power of expression.
The works are also featured in Foam Magazine's Talent Issue, which allows Foam to reflect on the full spectrum of creative approaches that mark today’s developments in the photographic medium.
