Foam – the internationally reaching publishing and exhibiting platform that recognises the best photography, like, ever – has gone one more step for the collective good of all photo lovers with their online initiative, Foam For You. As well as an educational challenge about the principles of photography in Stop… Look… Click!, they have also been releasing “inspiration movies” that focus on one particular image-makers oeuvre by way of a single, descriptive term.
Wonder is a film about Jessica Backhaus, and the word could not be more apt in describing her uncanny, near-surreal ability to capture the complete chromatic spectrum in the most inane of everyday moments. Loosely centred around her One Day in November portfolio and in non-teeth-grinding commentary, Jessica shares her delight for the unexpected pleasures her innocuous crops. Be it random light effects, harmonious combinations of detritus, reflections or textural combos, her insight and ineffable love of what she does means that you, too, buy into the “poetry of a banana skin” right along with her.
