The acclaimed Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam or Foam in Amsterdam each year presents Foam Talent, its list of 20 rising stars in the photography world. One of the most striking artists on the list is the Swiss-Guinean, Namsa Leuba, who grew up in Switzerland and studied at the University of Art and Design Lausanne. Her work explores the western representation of African identity and has been published in the British Journal of Photography, and New York Magazine. Foam is showcasing work from her NGL series, an acronym for ‘Next Generation Lagos’, in which she explores the energy and creativity of Nigeria’s capital city.
