Saudade is a Portuguese word that has no exact equivalent in any other language. It’s a sense of yearning that can never be fulfilled, as for a lost loved one, or a missed opportunity viewed with regret. It is a palpable sense of absence that seems to have its own kind of presence. Saudade is a bittersweet feeling - a profound sense of nostalgia rather than despair.

"My father passed away when I was 15 years old. Before he died he wanted to emigrate to Portugal to write a novel. He never got there to fulfill his wish. Many years later I went to Portugal to photograph the story that has never been written."

Nanouk Prins is an Amsterdam based photographer. In 2021 she graduated with honors at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam, with the photobook Empty Forest.
Prins is a photographer whose work aims to pinpoint the fulcrum between opposites: present and past, reality and illusion. It conveys a longing between what is and what could be, or what has been. She uses light, presence of shadows, absence of wind and long shutter speeds to draw viewers into another world. A world where time seems to have stopped. A world that doesn’t belong to anyone.

The First Edition is a unique chance to buy work by young talent for an attractive price. Four times a year Foam Editions presents a new photographer, carefully selected by Foam Editions. With this initiative Foam Editions facilitates a connection between young photographers and (potential) collectors. Previous First Editions were made by among others Paul Cupido, Sem Langendijk, Kevin Osepa, Lisette Appeldorn, Sarah van Rij and Suzette Bousema.

This set of Nanouk Prins is exclusively for sale at Foam Editions for a limited period of time, until mid September 2024.

The framed print will be carefully wrapped and send as an insured package. You will receive an e-mail with a Track & Trace code when the package is on its way. The work will soon be on display at Foam Editions, the gallery on the third floor of Foam Fotografiemuseum.
