Dear Filep and iDEALS,
on January 10th I attended the opening of MOAM & FOAM in Amsterdam. An exhibition with a huge success, was supported in an overcrowded space, having long queues for the opening!
The MOAM exhibition is about twelve young contemporary talents giving their reinterpretation to twelve Dutch fashion historic highlights. All iconic names in fashion, design, photography, illustration and journalism were brought together in this gathering. The past combined with the future. MOAM has selected one iconic image from three reputable Dutch photographers, Anton Corbijn, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin and Erwin Olaf and asked fifteen other talented photographers to translate these three images.
As result, five different interpretations on the occasion of the same photograph were presented. In addition, each photographer is linked to a Dutch designer, giving an innovative look at the iconic images. An interesting collaboration between the most successful names and the promising newcomers from the Dutch fashion and photography scene.
