FOAM presents Ernest Cole

Foam presents Human Bondage, a large-scale overview of the work of photographer Ernest Cole, mostly known for depicting apartheid in South-Afrika. As one of the first Black freelance photographers, Cole’s work offers a rare inside view. Less known is his work from his time in the US, where he continued to portray the lives of Black people. Cole’s negatives were considered lost for a long time, but a collection of 60,000 of them was found at a bank vault in Stockholm and, in April 2018, given to his heirs who had founded The Ernest Cole Family Trust. On view from 27 January.
