FotoFest 2014 Biennial
















FotoFest 2014 Biennial


In conjunction with the Meeting Place, a special and popular part of the Biennial is FotoFest’s exhibition of work from the previous Biennial’s portfolio reviews. 

Envisioned as a showcase for some of the best work discovered at the Biennial portfolio review, the 2014 Discoveries of the Meeting Place presents work chosen by ten reviewer/curators from the 2012 Meeting Place. 

This is the eleventh Discoveries exhibition. Like the Meeting Place itself, the Discoveriesexhibitions often travel beyond Houston and have been a launching pad for many photographic careers.
