It’s another celebratory year for Foam’s UNSEEN festival of emerging photographic talent, which opened this week in Amsterdam’s vast Westergasfabriek cultural venue. The ingenious premise of this festival, now in its third year, is to exclusively showcase photographic works which have never been exhibited within a gallery, in print or online before. Therefore giving collectors the chance to engage with the vanguard and visionary, the work on show is diverse and excellent.
