EXHIBITION AND SYMPOSIA
On 10 November 2015 the exhibition Foam Talent 2015 opened at Atelier Néerlandais in Paris. The show brings together the work of these young talents, who tell different and personal stories with their portfolios. Through this exhibition Foam presents its views on the current state of photography and creates a platform that introduces emerging talents in the international world of photography.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a symposium about emerging talent in photography on November 13 in Atelier Néerlandais, Paris.
