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.

The ocean: Rinko Kawauchi. 'Every time I go to the ocean, memories of days at the sea come back to me. When I go to see the summer fireworks, I am reminded of my family from days long past — their presence, the feeling of them around me'. #ft #ftmag #ftweekend #summer #water #magazine

'I have been on the road in India for the past three years, travelling through its towns and villages as research for my book Dreamers, asking young people what they want from their lives. At their age, I — along with most of my contemporaries growing up in India’s small towns — had wanted to leave, to move as far away as possible from the orbit of family, community and state. To that shared desire there was only one answer: the big city. A metropolis such as Delhi or Bombay used to symbolise freedom: freedom to work in an office, to live in an apartment complex, to shop at one of the shining new malls springing up to cater for the urban elite. So I was surprised when, one after the other, young Indians in small towns told me they saw big city life as slavery.' Snigdha Poonam reflects on India's journey, 70 years after independence.

'As a child, waving paper flags on Independence Day had meant freedom to me. The three colours, saffron, white and green, held the promise of equality for the cheerful mongrel mix of communities and faiths, the cacophonous and varied voices that rang out from every corner. We were a vast multitude — now 1.3bn people — constantly elbowing past each other, squeezing together to make more room. “Kindly adjust” could have been the national mantra. At 70, we’re negotiating a dangerous bend in the river. A young, and traditionally minded, generation of Indians don’t carry the memories of the Indian independence movement in their DNA, as previous generations did.' Nilanjana Roy reflects on her country’s journey, 70 years on. Read more at ft.com.
