Senta Simond

Foam is proud to present the exhibition Foam 3h: Senta Simond / Rayon Vert.

Senta Simond’s work focuses on an intimate approach to the female body and portraiture. Her photographs feature a circle of acquaintances and respond to existing, and too often clichéd, representation of femininity. Simond doesn’t take her photographs on a built set but against a white background, often a white wall in the domestic surroundings of the model herself. The equipment is simple. The level of trust between the model and the photographer is high. This minimal method allows Simond to get close to her subjects.

Model and photographer move around each other which results into unexpected and dynamic perspectives. Simond tries to capture the intimate moments, undirected. The portrayed women are strong and soft at the same time. Foam will show black-and-white as well as color works including a tryptic of Simond’s portraits in an intimate exhibition at Foam 3h, Foam’s space for young photographers.

Rayon Vert takes its title from a rare optical phenomenon of green flashes and rays that occur shortly after sunset or before sunrise. A green spot is visible for a short period of time above the sun, or a green ray shoots up from the sunset point. When this phenomenon occurs is never predictable. To Simond this rare moment is a metaphor for photography and the magic that can happen between a photographer and her model.

This exhibition is made possible with support of the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund and the Van Bijlevelt Foundation.
