Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Foam Talent, an event organized by Foam Magazine that showcases the next generation of photographers each year, is going to be held as a digital exhibition.

The digital exhibition will incorporate audio, video, and effects to display works by this year’s 19 finalists, and aims to present photography in respect of the digital space: without museum walls, boundaries, and constraints, with an overarching theme that is the idea of portraiture.

“The exhibition nods to the explorative nature of visiting a museum,” Foam said in a press release, “yet instead of attempting to recreate it, leads a viewer in a way for them to discover and experience new things: digitally native, intuitively.” Foam Talent | Digital will run alongside the artists’ features in Foam Magazine #55: Talent, as well as the touring installation, which was on display in Berlin until November 1, and will head to Amsterdam from December 18 2020 to April 7 2021.

Some of the notable names that will be featured in exhibition include Alba Zari, Karla Hiraldo Voleau, Micha Serraf, and Rahima Gambo.

Take a look at some of the works below. Foam Talent | Digital is open to the public here from today (November 19) and will run until April 21 2021.
