Foam magazine launches digital edition
For Foam’s 50th issue, the magazine has partnered with London-based digital publishing company Exact Editions to launch a digital edition.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
The archive is now available to purchase as a site-wide subscription.
Foam magazine is an international photography magazine published three times a year around a specific theme.
The title first appeared in 2002, in conjunction with the establishment of Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam, serving as an extension of the museum and offering an international platform for all kinds of photography, from historic to contemporary, documentary to fashion.
Each issue contains multiple portfolios by world-renowned image makers and emerging photography talent, as well as interviews and opinions by industry experts.
Brand new to the Exact Editions platform, the publication is available to purchase digitally for individuals and institutions, with fully searchable access to the archive of back issues and all the latest content across the branded iOS app, Android and web platforms.
Every page, issue and article is included in Exact Editions’ comprehensive search facility, meaning that subscribers can instantly look up a specific theme, photographer or article.
Managing Director of Exact Editions Daryl Rayner commented on the launch: “Foam magazine is a fascinating publication with striking visuals. We’re delighted to be able to offer the title to photography professionals and enthusiasts alike who will no doubt be impressed with the quality of the digital format.”
Issues including Dummy, William Klein, Ai Weiwei and On Earth, which have long been out of print, will be available for the first time in full digital form.
Foam’s Online Marketing Manager Kiki Sideris said: “We’re thrilled with how the publication looks on the Exact Editions platform. The facility to search past issues means a whole world of photography is opened up for new and existing subscribers to explore.”
The 50th issue of Foam, Water, emphasises the essential role that the element of water plays in our lives.
