Emerging Photo graphers from Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States Flash Forward is The Magenta Foundation’s annual emerging photographers competition. Now in its third year, this compelling look at exciting new work from three countries brings to light the talent and promise of an exceptional group of photographers.
Flash Forward showcases the future of photography, focusing on emerging talent that jurors have identified as having great potential. This small volume is essential for curators, collectors, advertising professionals and artists who wish to stay fully informed about up-and-coming photographers.
Photographers featured this year include: Jaime Campbell, Robyn Cumming, Adrian Fish, Jeff Harris, Adam Harrison, Eamon Mac Mahon, and Rob McInnis from Canada; Olivia Arthur, Charlie Crane, Sophie Gerrad, Guy Martin, Edgar Martins, Helga Steppan, and Andrea Testoni from the UK; Andrea Chu, Heather Culp, Matt Eich, Christopher LaMarca, William Lamson, Beatrix Reinhardt, and Shen Wei from the US.
The foreword is written by Susan Bright, an independent writer, lecturer and curator. She is former curator of photographs at the National Portrait Gallery and Director of the Association of Photographers Gallery.
