The exhibition is large and diverse, with a number of overlapping, intersecting themes, the unifying concept is a conceptual approach to photography, and a reframing of the medium. “There is a rich tradition of conceptual photography in Texas,” says Steven Evans, FotoFest’s Executive Director. “This exhibition is an opportunity to focus on recent practice in this sophisticated scene, and to present the work in a context that illuminates a range of approaches and shared concerns.”
 
Ashlyn Davis, HCP’s Executive Director concurs, adding, “This is our chance to turn the spotlight on the most ambitious artists working in photography in the state. The collaborative nature of our curatorial approach this year allowed us to consider a rich diversity of artists  are all pushing the boundaries of what photography can do.”

Organizer

FotoFest International

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.

In addition to its internationally known Biennial, FotoFest sponsors Inter-Biennial programs - exhibitions, international exchange programs, and publications. In grades 3-12, FotoFest operates a year-round classroom education program, Literacy Through Photography, using photography to strengthen writing skills, visual literacy, and cognitive learning.
