About Foam

Foam enables people all over the world to experience and enjoy photography, whether it's at our museum in Amsterdam, via our internationally distributed Foam Magazine or online.

Foam is for photographers, picture editors, designers and all those who have a passion for photography. We focus especially on exhibitions, publications, discussions and specific projects relevant to contemporary themes in this field. Of course, well known photographers and historical work have an important place in Foam's agenda. But special attention in the programme is given to nurturing upcoming talented artists.


The heart of the Foam organisation is in Amsterdam. From here we develop and produce our exhibitions programme. We manage print publications like Foam Magazine as well as all online content. Foam Editions also has its home here, offering a wide range of work for collectors.


Essential to Foam is our extensive international network of photography professionals and partners. They help to plan and develop new projects, ensuring that the largest audience possible can experience the power of photography.

Send your proposal (by email only) to, containing an intro to your project and a maximum of 6 images in jpeg format as attachment (300 dpi, maximum of 1 MB).
