In Limbo – Photo Vogue Festival
Watch the online conversation

Watch the online conversation between Foam Magazine editor-in-chief Elisa Medde, artists Johny Pitts, Laia Abril and curator Tanvi Mishra about our perception and use of photography. Learn more about how we are experiencing the two main topics of our time - a global pandemic and social challenges - while looking at how this could be a fundamental chance to shift our questions on photography: stop asking 'what photography is' and start consciously talking about 'what photography can do' and 'what we want photography to do'.⁠

This conversation was part of Photo Vogue Festival on 21 November 2020.

The exhibition is made possible with the support of the Tim Hetherington Trust and the Magnum Foundation and is a collaboration with Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire.

The Foam Paul Huf Award is made possible with the generous support from an anonymous partner.

Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, City of Amsterdam, Foam Members, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
