Foam Talent | New York
22 March — 10 April 2019

Opening party Thursday 21 March 6–9 pm

“The annual Foam Talent Call is an international search for exceptionally talented photographers under the age of 35. For this twelfth edition, a total of 1.853 artists from 74 different countries submitted their portfolios. The twenty selected photographers give us insight into the state of contemporary photography. This generation crosses the borders of the photographic medium with remarkable ease; installations where the immersive quality of the work nowadays is as important as more traditional two-dimensional photography. In this digital age, there seems to be an increasing interest for geological time and the cycle of time expressed in projects around the themes of night fall, processing grief, nostalgia and homesickness. Archival material continues to play an important role, as well as complex and lengthy research in pervasive socio-political factors that influence our everyday life. Altogether the selected projects show us how essential authenticity, intrinsic quality and the visual power of expression are.”
