Foam Talks x Paris Photo - Igor Tereshkov & Anastasia Samoylova Foam Talks

    • Arts

The medium of photography and the world are changing rapidly. Photographers Igor Tereshkov (RU, 1989) and Anastasia Samoylova (RU/US, 1984) are part of a new generation of documentary photographers. Experimenting with different techniques, the two research the connection between humans and their environment. Together with David Campany, Managing Director of Programs at the International Center of Photography, the two artists speak about their research.


Igor Tereshkov works with mixed media including documentary photography and experiments with different photo process and mediums. His work revolves around topics such as environment, ecology and the Anthropocene. One of these examples is his series ‘Oil and Moss’ shot in KhMAO, the district producing about 50% of Russia’s oil. This work shows the irresponsible handling of fossils and the damage this brings to Indigenous People and nature.


Anastasia Samoylova moves between observational photography, studio practice and installation. By utilizing tools and strategies related to digital media and commercial photography, her work explores notions of environmentalism, consumerism and the picturesque. Her recent series ‘Floridas’ document Florida’s complex history and its connection to the broader context of contemporary USA.


Together, Foam and Paris Photo present a brand-new season of the podcast series Foam Talks: Talent Edition. This series presents eight talented image-makers from both the fair's Curiosa Sector and Foam Talent 2021. Each of the episodes welcomes two photographers, one of each organisations' talent programme. Brought together by a common theme and approach, the photographers speak about their projects and motivations, as well as the challenges they encounter.
