This exhibition was the second edition of a MOAM project and was acquired by photography museum FOAM. MOAM took three renowned Dutch photographers (Anton Corbijn, Inez van Lamsweerde and Erwin Olaf) and one iconic photograph. This resulted in five different interpretations of the same photograph by the young talents. Apart from that, every photographer got teamed up with a Dutch designer. In this way, inspiring and creative combinations were created that created a new look against iconic imagery. An interesting collaboration between established names and promising new talent from the Dutch fashion and photography world arose.
