ABOUT FOAM TALENT
Every year Foam organises the Foam Talent Call to identify young and international talents. From over 1.790 submissions from 75 different countries across 6 continents, 20 photographers were selected to be featured in the annual Foam Magazine Talent Issue. The exhibition Foam Talent, created using the Talent Issue as a starting point, brings together the work of a new generation of young artists. The exhibition is on display at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall in London from 16 May until 10 June 2018, previously travelled to New York, and will soon be presented in Frankfurt.
The Foam Talent Programme is supported by the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and the Niemeijer Fund.
