Foam, i vincitori del concorso per giovani fotografi: i loro scatti girano il mondo e mostrano la nuova frontiera della fotograf. Come ci si muove in un mondo pieno di immagini? Come fanno i giovani fotografi a emergere nel caos? Ci pensa il Foam, importante centro di fotografia di Amsterdam che ogni anno, da sette anni, indice un premio per giovani talenti.

Quest'anno sono stati scelti 21 artisti tra 1.473 candidati provenienti da 71 Paesi. Per i vincitori è un'occasione di crescita professionale imperdibile. I loro lavori stanno girando il mondo: prima ad Amsterdam e a Parigi; ora alla East Wing Gallery di Dubai, fino al 10 gennaio. La giuria, composta dal giovane team del Foam, spiega i criteri di selezione: «C'è una differenza tra “essere di talento” ed “essere un talento”. L'obiettivo del Foam non è solo far conoscere al mondo questi autori promettenti ma ragionare su come cambia oggi la fotografia. Qualche esempio? 1. Otto Kaan.

In the Western world, relatively little is understood about the recent boom in visual arts from one of the world's burgeoning regions: Southeast Asia. Yet the visual brilliance and critical purpose of this region's contemporary art is undeniable. Distinct from the long entwined European/East Asian art scene, Southeast Asian art possesses a powerful, autonomous and multi-faceted voice, expressing the heterogenous nature of this region. Today, the area is one of the most linguistically, politically, and religiously diverse zones in the world—and its art reflects that. This year's edition of Art Paris Art Fair brings together 145 galleries from some 20 countries at the Grand Palais.

The fair focusses on discovery and presents a wide panorama of modern and contemporary art, including a healthy showing of photography and lens-based media. Since 2012, under the leadership of Guillaume Piens, the fair has undergone a profound renewal. —LensCulture. I finalisti del concorso fotografico dello Smithsonian.

New Topographics. Ansel Adams, El Capitan, Sunrise, Winter, Yosemite Valley, California, 1968 Until the 1970s, landscape photography consisted of showing an idealized landscape, the same landscape which had appeared in paintings for centuries, the land appearing a romantic wilderness. Photographers showed the American West as the American Dream, a perfect vision of America, a vast natural landscape, vacant of human population and devoid of change. The Re‐Photographic Survey Project This was the beginning of a change in direction for landscape photography. The project drew upon the work of the Frontier photographers by showing the same scenes which they had photographed, but as they were found in the 1970’s.

Rephotographic Survey Project Mark Klett was one of the main photographers; he went great lengths to make his work as similar as possible; using a 5 x 4 camera, Type 55 for raw edges and titling, hand‐written white text at the bottom of each photograph saying when and where it was taken.
