Foam welcomes Hydra, a young photography platform based in Mexico City, for a collaborative presentation of young talent from Mexico at Foam 3h. 
 
From workshops on bookmaking to curating exhibitions, Hydra organises a range of photography-related activities, establishing a vibrant network of contemporary photographers in the process. Foam and Hydra present the work of two young talents in Mexican photography: Nelson Morales (1982) and Diego Moreno (1992). Mexico’s complex history has created an equally complex society. Over time, it has absorbed various different cultures and traditions, combined strong Catholic values with beliefs from other religions, and mixed influences from foreign cultures with indigenous, pre-Hispanic customs. Through photography, both artists visualise and question notions of identity through personal and cultural explorations in their own local environment.
 
Foam X Hydra is the first of three collaborations taking place in 2017, involving photography platforms in Mexico City (Mexico), Lagos (Nigeria) and Yogyakarta (Indonesia) that each operate in a specific local art scene. The initiative offers Foam the opportunity to present young talent from different cultural contexts and to research new developments in local photography discourses worldwide.
