Issue 1 - Dutch Delight
Foam Magazine is an international photography magazine published three times a year around a specific theme. The magazine serves as a platform for all kinds of photography: from documentary to fashion and contemporary to historic.
Each issue contains:
- multiple portfolios by world-renowned image makers and emerging photography talent
- interviews and opinions by experts in the field of photography
- surprising and distinctive editorial choices
Foam Magazine has been awarded several prizes for both its high-grade graphic design and the quality of its content. Most recently, Foam Magazine was awarded Photography Magazine of the Year at the Lucie Awards 2017. The magazine is a publication of Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam.
The annual Foam Magazine Talent Issue and the related Talent Programme are supported by the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and the Niemeijer Fund. Foam Magazine is sponsored by Igepa Netherlands BV, supplier of excellent paper.
The 2020 edition of the Foam Magazine Talent Issue contains a selection of 20 artists from a fascinating pool of submissions. A wide spectrum of themes, techniques and approaches that once again lets us say — yes, photography is very well alive and in very good health. As it is alive, it is changing, evolving, creating ramifications and cross-pollinating. Most importantly, as the access to opportunity increases, the panorama becomes more and more fertile — and it’s beautifully blossoming.
The Talent Issue this year is even more special: for the first time in the history of Foam Magazine we are releasing two different covers, one with an image by Kamonlak Sukchai and the other by Alba Zari. These two wonderful images represent the extremes of the very broad spectrum in image making that we had the honour of exploring while browsing the submissions of the Talent Call.
