Foam Talent Symposium

Friday 13 November
10.00 – 12.00 uur.
Doors open: 9.00 uur
Language: English

Key figures in photography discuss the scouting and presentation of young talented photographers within the international photography industry.

Foam Magazine’s annual Talent Call is not only a platform for introducing emerging talents to the international world of photography, but also a springboard for entering the creative industries in fields such as fashion, design, advertising and even news media. How are young visual artists being picked up as sources of inspiration by these industries? In what ways can both parties benefit from mutual exchanges and what kind of sustainable relationships could be established for fruitful collaborations?

Within the framework of the Foam Talent 2015 exhibition and Paris Photo, on Friday 13 November at Atelier Néerlandais in Paris, Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam and the Royal Netherlands Embassy are hosting an international symposium to discuss scouting and presentation of young talented photographers within the international photography industry.

Following the conversation on talent presentation within the photography industry, Foam’s artistic director Marcel Feil, Sandrine Macé Krabal (independent art director), Lucy Conticello (Director of Photography at M, Le Monde) and Frede Spencer (Founder Twenty Twenty Agency, London) will discuss other possible pathways for young visual artists to emerge outside of the established photography context.
