Who are you?
At first glance, it appears to be a straightforward question, and one that - in most instances - we are conditioned to answer simply: by providing our name. Yet, upon reflection, it begins to feel like such an arbitrary distinction. It is probably fair to assume that the question of identity has forever occupied a position of great importance in the human mind, and that it will always continue to do so. The same can be said of the relationship between photography and identity. In the current issue of Foam Magazine we tackle the spectrum of identity and its various subchapters with eight portfolios that share a very specific perspective: the dialogue, and sometimes the contrast between a fluid and constantly renegotiated sense of self and a rooted, outspoken sense (or need) of community.
