Photography

In Ukrainian trains, it is a tradition that after boarding, passengers put on more comfortable clothes, change their shoes into slippers or lie barefoot, have dinner and a drink - and all this in cramped compartments. ⁠From that moment on everything seems possible. The notions of privacy and personal boundaries are dim in the train light...

Climate change, political conflict, discrimination, displacement, and social justice - this new issue of Foam Talent addresses the pressing problems of our times and reminds us that photography has the capability to capture the unspeakable. ⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ 20 upcoming talents in photography look closely at both the world around us, and the one within — without shying away from discomfort or pain. Rather, they use the photographic medium to respond to, digest and navigate a world that continues to present new challenges and problematic structures.⁠⁠ Buy...

AIKO is a visual and very personal diary by Berlin based photographer Florian Hetz. He turns his very own, unique gaze on the male body - its fears and obsessions, its shame and its lust. He successfully captures the breathing-sculpture quality of the portrayed men without turning them into objects of voyeuristic or even pornographic desire. The touching, intimate photographs tell a story about togetherness and loneliness.⁠⁠   Buy...

Guido Palau, probably one of the most innovative and respected hairstylists in the world, is, as you can imagine, always busy. But that changed in the midst of the global pandemic when his non-stop schedule came to a halt. The creator of some of the most iconic hairstyles suddenly had time to himself - to pause, reflect and develop visions all his own. The book Hairtests is the result of this time. He used his mobile phone to document his creations, not to compile them in a photo book of finished works, but rather in a sketchbook, a collection of ideas. The result is truly ground-breaking. For as with all artists, their true vision is not revealed in collaboration, when they follow someone else's artistic direction, but in their personal projects. ⁠   Buy...

Between rough rocks, dry vegetation and blindingly glistening water, a new kind of family was born - a group of friends who share adventure, community and light-heartedness. Kate Bellm has enchantingly captured the sun-drenched lives around the reef of her and her friends. The images make you dream of free diving, starry nights, warm sun-kissed skin and a playful life.⁠⁠⁠ ⁠⁠⁠ "La Isla" is the island of Mallorca, their home of choice, but also the island in spirit, far from the social norms of normal society, that this group of friends have created for themselves. So take a deep breath and jump with them into a remote world made of psychedelic skies, otherworldly desert plants, trippy escapes and intimate encounters under the sea.⁠⁠⁠   Buy...

The Italian photographer Luigi Ghirri (1943-1992) coined the term "sentimental geography" to describe a unique artistic approach in which the ordinary is worthy of closer scrutiny. Puglia, an - at the time - off-the-beaten-track region at the very tip of the heel of Italy, with its whitewashed houses and streets, attracted the attention of this extraordinary photographer. Neglected by the rest of Italy, which looked only to the rich and profitable north of the country, he turned his camera to the everyday life of this sun-drenched land and its inhabitants. The minimalist yet sensitive photographs, with their elegant colour palette, evoke a sense of place known for its ancient architecture, crystal clear waters and arid olive groves.⁠⁠   Buy...

For an Exhibition at Aloft at Hermès in Singapore, French artist Xavier Antin created a machine that validates Bitcoin transaction. A fraction of the processed transaction rewards this "work". The cryptocurrency accumulated through the machine is then used to finance automatic delivery of bouquets of flowers to the Aloft Space. This book shows these bouquets, which are beautifully Riso-printed using only orange, green, medium blue, flat gold, yellow and purple. Below each image is a reference to the validated transaction used to pay for the flowers.⁠⁠   Buy...

This is a stunning and heartbreaking photo book at the same time. French photographer Mohamed Bourouissa's iconic visual account of violence, social inequality, but also unexpected beauty and tenderness in the Parisian banlieues is published here in its entirety for the first time.⁠⁠   Buy...

Obsessed with flea-markets, car boot sales and the the leftovers of lives lived in recent urban history that they hold, Nadia Lee Cohen collected the name badges of 33 unknown individuals. She created personas for these name badges, visualised their imagined lives through an arrangement of objects and ultimately transformed herself into them.⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ The photographic portraits and resulting book are the product of many hours spent in wardrobe, make up and prosthetics - and the endless creativity of one of the greatest contemporary artists!⁠⁠ ⁠⁠ Nadia Lee Cohen’s “HELLO My Name Is” sold out at the publisher before it even reached us!⁠⁠ Clothbound hardcover, 160 pages. First edition of 1000.⁠ ⁠⁠   Buy...

As We Rise presents an exciting compilation of photographs from African diasporic culture. With over one hundred works by Black artists from Canada, the Caribbean, Great Britain, the United States, South America, as well as throughout the African continent, this volume provides a timely exploration of Black identity on both sides of the Atlantic.⁠ ⁠ As Teju Cole describes in his preface, “Too often in the larger culture, we see images of Black people in attitudes of despair, pain, or brutal isolation. As We Rise gently refuses that. It is not that people are always in an attitude of celebration—no, that would be a reverse but corresponding falsehood—but rather that they are present as human beings, credible, fully engaged in their world.” Drawn from Dr. Kenneth Montague’s Wedge Collection in Toronto—a Black-owned collection dedicated to artists of African descent—As We Rise looks at the multifaceted ideas of Black life through the lenses of community, identity, and power.   Buy...
