Foam 44: On Earth
For the first issue of 2016, the editors of Foam Magazine are proud to present a renovated format. To do maximum justice to the richness and diversity of contemporary photography we have added a number of inspiring new regular features. Next to insights and sneak peeks, we will now feature a lengthy and in depths interview to each time a different, prominent figure of the photographic world. For this issue, Federica Chiocchetti interviewed Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin over their collaboration and challenging projects.
The essence of Foam Magazine still consists of a relevant theme represented by the work of different artists. The theme is On Earth. We investigate the way in which our natural environment is depicted at the start of a new millennium, as human influence is visible everywhere, leading to questions about the future of the earth that are relevant and topical. How can the effects of human dealings on earth, in which an important part is played by relationships between science, power, politics, economics, law and technology, be depicted by artists? The work on show raises questions about the distinction between the natural and the artificial and at the same time offers both visual beauty and a display of photographic ingenuity.
