Houston + FotoFest 2008

FotoFest – wow.

Photographers, curators, collectors and dealers converge on Houston biannually to celebrate the photographic community. The big event is The Meeting Place – where photographers have a 20 minute window to get their work in front of photography’s finest, hoping to sell, show, curate their work. I was honored to be part of such a great event, and I saw alot of really good work.

The great thing about FotoFest is its international community – I saw some really tremendous work from Korea, Poland, Italy and South America, as well as solid work from US artists.
