Foam is a photography gallery located in Central Amsterdam. They are now showing new works from Alex Prager, a talented American photographer. I remembered years I came across with her work, it was a film called Despair. She used sharp color with a strong contrast effect. It made me think of Hitchcock's movie. In the show, you will see each photograph depicting an incident accompanying with another small photographs showing an eye from a witnesses of the incident. It questioned you what is the meaning of seeing in postmodern world? How do we deal with visual images? Jorg Colberg wrote on the catalogue, as viewers, we are turned into children in a visual candy store. We know we shouldn't, but we must indulge.
