On Thursday 12 July, the Foam Talent Exhibition opened at the Mercatorplein in Amsterdam West. The large billboard exhibition includes 31 photographs of seven selected Foam Talents. More than 900 young photographers from around the world entered this year's 'Foam Talent Call' (read more ) of the international photography magazine Foam Magazine, produced by Foam and Vandejong. Sixteen young talents were selected (read more), and work by these talents will be featured in Foam Magazine #32 / Talent and in an outdoor exhibition in the Westerpark during Unseen.
