About us

FOAM IS ALL ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY
We are an internationally operating organisation in the field of photography, based in Amsterdam. Foam informs and inspires the widest possible audience by showing all facets of contemporary photography.

We accomplish this by organising a range of activities. These vary from exhibitions to publications, debates and educational projects. Foam discovers, develops, defines, publishes and stimulates. In this process, scouting and presenting young, emerging talent is one of our distinguishing qualities. Many activities take place within the Amsterdam museum, but for specific projects, Foam will also specifically approach an international audience.

Foam frequently organises events abroad, often in close collaboration with our partners. Foam is situated in the heart of the international photography community and is up-to-date like no other. We respond to the latest developments in photography with surprising and relevant projects, and are not afraid to break with tradition and strike new paths. In this process, quality, flexibility, innovation, accessibility and entrepreneurship are core values
