Preview: FotoFest Biennial, Houston, Texas

We just arrived at FotoFest and frankly the sprawl of the event is a bit intimidating. Aside from 8 HQ event locations there are over 100 venues participating in the Houston downtown and surrounding areas.

We are here to participate in one of four portfolio review days and try to hit some of the highlights of the shows around town. While many of the high profile activities end this week, there is more throughout the month of April.

FotoFest® created the first international Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art in the United States. FotoFest ® is an international non-profit photographic arts and education organization based in Houston, Texas.

FotoFest’s purpose is to promote the exchange of art and ideas through international programs and the presentation of photographic art. Our programs work globally and locally, bringing together an international vision of art and cross-cultural exchange with a commitment to community involvement and the enrichment of Houston’s cultural resources.

We will be reporting on site for the next few days but also have to finish up some NYC shows from last week. Excuse us while we “mix and match”.

    Enjoy the FotoFest!
