The annual Foam Talent Call is designed to showcase exceptional young photographers from all over the world. Last year, in addition to being published in the annual photography magazine, Foam Magazine, the works of the 16 selected Talents were showcased in a large outdoor billboard exhibition at Unseen Photo Fair 2012. At Unseen, Talents were introduced to professionals in the photography industry and photography enthusiasts keen on discovering new talent.

JH Engström is honored with the Leica Oskar Barnack Award 2015 for his photographic project titled Tout Va Bien. Born in Sweden, JH Engström’s prize includes a cash prize of 25,000 euros and a Leica M camera and lens. Tout Va Bien does not handle a concrete subject in the traditional sense. The Swedish photographer JH Engström intends his project to be seen much more as visual poetry – a photographic narrative with strong autobiographical elements. Despite this, it does not exclusively depict aspects of his own life. Tout Va Bien is a sequence of widely differing images. The winning series includes both portraits and landscapes, as well as bizarre snapshots like the photograph of the birth of his twins. The photographer also switches between exposures in black and white and colour. Engström plays with contrasts and leaves it to viewers to find their own ways of reading and interpreting each picture. The complete project comprises 90 images and will be published in book form by Aperture in July.
