Each year, Foam organises an international Talent Call to identify young, emerging photographers under the age of 35. The 2016 Talent Call for Foam Magazine had a total of 1494 submissions from 75 different countries across 6 continents. Once again, the editors were delighted by the impressive variety and high quality of all submissions. The work of 24 selected photographers is now presented in Foam Magazine #45. The Talent Issue is a career building platform, helping to launch aspiring image-makers into the international photography industry and giving them global acclaim and recognition.
Furthermore, Foam Magazine’s regular features offer a glimpse at the latest projects of a number of former Talents. ‘Unexpected Marriages’ profiles a recent collaboration between Japanese fashion house ISSEY MIYAKE and photographer Yoshinori Mizutani, whilst in ‘Toolbox’ Daniel Gordon – a previous recipient of the Foam Paul Huf Award – reveals more about the process that culminates in his striking collage-based works. Issue #45 also features an extended interview with Darius Himes, Head of Photographs at Christie’s, in which he offers advice to future generations of aspiring image-makers.
