Foam Paul Huf Award 2021 for young photography talent goes to John Edmonds

The Brooklyn-based photographer won the prestigious prize, €20,000 and a solo show at the Amsterdam gallery for his “clarity of vision” portraying the African-American perspective.

The Foam jury says in a statement that Edmonds’ work impressed them for its “very articulate, distinctive style and clarity of vision,” that was “seemingly simple but in essence culturally complex”. They add that his work “stems from a deep understanding of the medium of photography and taps into its modernist history”.
