Olympus Fellowship 2020
Foam stands for talent. We scout, follow and present new generations of talented image-makers worldwide in order to recognise and inspire exceptional work. Our goal is to devote timely, focused attention to new relevant developments in photography.
Discover our online activities around the exhibition Foam 3h: Susanne Khalil Yusef - Lalalala. Khalil Yusef (b. 1984) considers herself to be Palestinian. Her grandparents fled Jaffa in 1948 and were determined to return. They never did. Khalil Yusef’s Palestinian heritage is central to her highly personal artwork through which she addresses urgent topics such as displacement, human rights and identity.
