The retrospective Regie: Paul Huf ("Directed by Paul Huf") features some of the finest photos by one of Holland’s best-known photographers, a pioneer and grand master of commercial, fashion and portrait photography, Paul Huf (1924 – 2002). This exhibition is especially significant for Foam because Huf, who passed away last January, was one of the founders of the museum, together with Eva Besnyö. This is Foam’s first show following three months of renovation work at Keizersgracht 609.
