W. Eugene Smith

17 December 2010 - 16 March 2011 at Foam Amsterdam:

This winter, Foam presents a retrospective with work by W. Eugene Smith (US, 1918−1978). Smith has been hailed as the founder of the photographic essay. His extensive pictorial narratives, accompanied by captions and comments, appeared in magazines such as the world-famous American periodical Life in the 1950s, during the heyday of photographic journalism. Smith’s black-and-white reportages exhibit a powerful sense of involvement, dealing with subject matter that reflects his social commitment.
