Vauxhall’s Beaconsfield Gallery is set to play host to one of the photography scene’s most eagerly-awaited annual extravaganzas.
Described by the organisers as “a forward-thinking showcase of photography,” the yearly Foam Talent exhibition opens this week, and features 20 of the finest emerging photographers snapping away today.
Crossing “the borders of the medium with remarkable ease,” the artists on show have been picked for their interest in time, socio-politics and the quotidian experiences of life here in these unsure end times.
“These artists,” says a representative for the Dutch photography organisation, “possess and demonstrate authenticity through powerful means of visual expression.”
It runs from 16 May all the way through to 16 June 2019. All the photographers involved were recruited through Foam’s annual talent search, and they’ll all have their work featured in the next issue of Foam’s print publication, Foam Magazine.
