The first episode in the series is Picturing Tragedy: a conversation between New York-based photographer Philip Montgomery, the Director of Photography of The New York Times Magazine Kathy Ryan and curator of this year's Foam Talent exhibition Mirjam Kooiman. Montgomery and Ryan have worked together on the occasion of different editorial assignments Ryan gave to Montgomery, in which both constantly seek to balance the fine line between photojournalism and fine art. The starting point of the conversation is Montgomery’s series Flash Pointswith which he features in Foam Magazine’s Talent issue of 2020 and the subsequent exhibitions Foam Talent | Digital and Foam Talent | Amsterdam.
