“The German fashion photographer Erwin Blumenfeld (1897-1969) is one of the most celebrated and best-paid fashion photographers of his time. He was best known for his oeuvre in black and white, but the exhibition in Foam focuses on the colour photography he created in his period in New York (1941-1960) and brought him worldwide recognition. The unique style of self-taught Blumenfeld has been a major influence on fashion photography in magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. Foam displays some eighty colour prints, a number of vintages from his periods in Amsterdam and Paris in black and white, original magazines and some of his experimental fashion films.”
