30 years later, we look back with models Emme and Sugi on their photoshoot with photographer Remsen Wolff. Wolff photographed both models in the 1990s at the American Hotel in Amsterdam as part of the series Special Girls - A Celebration. Discover more about Wolff's ideas about this photo series and way of working by watching the video.
On 7 October 2020, Foam invited historian Alex Bakker and Assistant Professor Eliza Steinbock for a double lecture on gender identity around the work of photographer Remsen Wolff (1940 – 1998). The event was concluded with a conversation moderated by Bappie Kortram, co-host Kutmannen.
Listen to parts of the conversation to learn more about what it meant to be transgender in the days of Remsen Wolff, and in what way matters of identification and representation in Wolff's work may persist in the present day.
