This is not a Guided Tour
Especially for Foam and the Magnum Contact Sheets exhibition, the talented Amsterdam producer Simon Weiss (aka Isaie Reuling) made an audio experience, which leads you through the exhibition.

Magnum Contact Sheets shows the magic surrounding the all-encompassing ‘decisive moment’ and how iconic images come to exist. It offers insight into the working methods of the world’s most famed journalistic photographers by looking at their original contact sheets.

Especially for Foam and the Magnum Contact Sheets exhibition, the talented Amsterdam producer Simon Weiss produced 25 new track combining samples of speeches from iconic moments in world history, abstract soundwaves and musical repertoires. Not affected by hits and hypes, Simon Weiss’ sound is the perfect blend between the old and the new, between the US and Europe.
