Foam Talent at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall

The kids are alright: world's rising art photography talent honoured in London exhibition...

Amsterdam-based purveyors of all things good in the world of art photography, Foam, are bringing their hand-picked assemblage of rising stars to London in April, in an exhibition based on their annual Foam Magazine Talent Issue.

The likes of Switzerland’s Manon Wertenbroek, Canada’s Sara Cwynar, and the United States’ Justin James Reed, comprise a who’s who of emerging international photography talent; plenty of whom never stepped a foot in the 1980s. Installations, lightboxes and analogue prints will make up over 100 photographs from the prodigies originally selected for Foam Magazine #42.

Foam Talent: Shaping the future of contemporary photography will show at Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall between 22 April and 22 May, 2016.

The full list of Foam’s rising photography talent is: Aaron Blum (United States), Alessandro Calabrese (Italy), Tom Callemin (Belgium), Sara Cwynar (Canada), David Favrod (Switzerland), Dominic Hawgood (United Kingdom), Guo Peng (China), Heikki Kaski (Finland), Matthew Leifheit & Cynthia Talmadge (United States), Mariam Medvedeva (France), Abel Minnée (The Netherlands), Marton Perlaki (Hungary), Constantin Schlachter (France), Sjoerd Knibbeler (The Netherlands), Justin James Reed (United States), Johan Rosenmunthe (Denmark), Jean-Vincent Simonet (France), Danila Tkachenko (Russia), Naohiro Utagawa (Japan), Christian Vium (Denmark) and Manon Wertenbroek (Switzerland).
