Entrance of the FOAM Photography Museum, Amsterdam

At the FOAM Photography Museum

I visited FOAM on June 13th, 2020 to see their “Vivian Maier – Works in Color” exhibition.

FOAM is located in a beautiful old canal house on the Keizers­gracht 609, its interior a mix of old features and modern chrome and glass, with large windows overlooking the garden. A renowned photography museum with a relaxed ambiance, it has regular parallel exhibitions from both noted and up-and-coming photographers — it also runs a variety of workshops and lectures about photography.

The three-story building in grey stone with the text “Anno 1861” on the façade dates back to Carel Joseph Fodor (1801–1860), who first bought Keizers­gracht 611 and later the adjacent ware­house and residential house at number 609. In his testament he destined the warehouse as the Museum Fodor exhibition space (open between 1863 and 1994). After extensive renovations the three buildings became a modern museum from June 2002 on.
