This policy ensures that Foam's collection provides an accurate image of the most recent developments within the expansive field of photography. The works that have been selected for this first collection exhibition clearly do justice to this policy. The exhibition will feature work by young photographers and artists as well as those whose names have now become well-known, such as Daniëlle van Ark, Linus Bill, Blommers & Schumm, Raphaël Dallaporta (Foam Paul Huf Award [FPHA] 2011), Lara D'Hondt, Fleur van Dodewaard, Constant Dullaart, Uta Eisenreich, Stephen Gill, Marnix Goossens, Pieter Hugo (FPHA 2008), Joris Jansen, Katja Mater, Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs (FPHA 2013), Alex Prager (FPHA 2012), Peter Puklus, Misha de Ridder, Viviane Sassen, Lieko Shiga, Taryn Simon (FPHA 2007), Lorenzo Vitturi, Anne de Vries and WassinkLundgren.
Foam exhibited a part of its collection in 2011, during the annual international photography festival Rencontres d'Arles. The work was also seen in the Still//Life - Dutch Contemporary Photography exhibition, which travelled to Moscow, among other places. In addition, Foam has loaned works to the Jan Cunen Museum in Oss, Netherlands, the Daegu Photo Biennale in South Korea, the Lewis Gluckman Gallery in Cork and the Art Museum of Northern Norway in Tromsø.
