Foam Magazine #34 Dummy

Cover Foam Magazine #34 Dummy

I contributed four interviews to Foam Magazine #34 – a special issue about photobook dummies (not photobooks for dummies, but dummy dummies) – instead of the usual magazine format, it’s a box containing eight 16-page reproductions of dummies by young and/or emerging photographers, and a booklet with interviews, advertisements, book reviews and other regularities.

Foam Magazine’s editors selected eight book dummies from the huge pile that was submitted to photofestival Unseen‘s Unpublished Dummy Award 2012. One of those is Shinji Otani’s strange and wonderfully laid-out The Country of the Rising Sun, which won the Dummy Award and will soon be published by Lecturis, with design and typesetting by Our Polite Society.Foam Magazine #34 & Shinji Otani’s debut photobook will be presented tomorrow at &Foam (Vijzelstraat 78, Amsterdam).
