Mother's Day
The studio of Seydou Keïta was known for capturing its subjects at their best. Keïta went out of his way to make sure that his customers went home happy.

They put on their favourite clothes; dresses with striking fabrics and extravagant forms, or posed with props like a flower, a radio or a motorcycle.

On Sunday 13 May, Mother's Day, come strike your best pose with mom. During the walk-in workshop inspired by the work of Keïta, a selection of objects and backdrops are at your disposal to make your most memorable photograph of or with your mother. To celebrate Mother's Day, we are giving away 3 free Foam Fan+ Memberships, with which you can visit exhibitions and events at Foam all year round. 

* The 3 recipients will be selected from all participating mothers and announced at noon on Monday 14 May.
