Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam is proud to present Foam Album 08, a lavish, illustrated account of what Foam had to offer in 2008, as well as a handsome photo book with surprising work by known and lesser known photographers.
Photography is given free rein in the second edition of Foam Album: the emphasis is on the images. All photographers who collborated with Foam on exhibitions, publications or projects in the past year have contributed an image from 2008 that had special meaning for them. It is a genereous gesture that has produced a unique collection. Thus, this Foam Album, which brings together all the exhibitions of the past year in text and images, illustrates what Foam strives to be: a place where photography is exhibited in all its forms, from advertising and fashion to documentary and journalistic work, contemporary and historical.
