Book of Beds A Selection of Foam Magazin
This volume is a collection of "bed portraits" edited from the numerous photos submitted over a two-year period for "Foam" magazine's annual Talent Call. The idea for a book came about as the editors at "Foam" noticed how frequently images of beds recurred throughout the works sent in by young photographers. It soon became apparent that this often-ignored item of furniture was full of narrative potential, each image telling a story about its occupant(s) vastly different from the next. "The bed is the place where we sleep, where we make love, where most of us are born and where most of us will die," stated Marcel Feil, editor of the magazine. "In a certain sense, the bed is a metaphor for life." This giftworthy book includes images by nearly 50 photographers.
