Foam Talent Call 2013: selected photographers
The seventh edition of the Foam Talent Call 2013 had a total of
1566 submissions from 72 different countries, which makes this year
even more successful than last year's Talent Call. Judging the
entries has not been an easy task, but 16 artists have now been
chosen to feature in the Foam Talent issue. We were deeply
impressed by the high quality and variety of all submissions.
