FotoFest's International Discoveries

The annual International Discoveries exhibition, presented by FotoFest, the international bi-annual photography festival, will be on view until December 8, 2007, at FotoFest Headquarters in Houston, Texas. The creative directors of FotoFest, Founders Wendy Watriss and Fred Baldwin and Exhibitions Coordinator Jennifer Ward selected nine photographers from the touring of photography and art festivals around the world, including those from Uruguay, Mexico, England, Argentina, South Korea, and Poland. The exhibition was planned to help prepare for the upcoming FotoFest 2008 Festival, for which over 100 spaces throughout the city will participate.

From FotoFest's website:

"Chan-Hyo Bae's work reflects his feelings as an Asian immigrant in the West. Lydia Panas examines her family and community. Alessandra Sanguinetti profiles the relationship of two young children as they grow. Diego Ranea takes an unconventional view of landscapes. Kelly Flynn's ironic look at sexual iconography and gender roles is as serious as it is funny. Przemyslaw Pokrycki documents rituals from birth to death. John Chervinsky's scientific schemata reflect his career as a scientist and professor. Roberto Fernández Ibáñez addresses nature and the seasons through the pairing of haiku and equally poetic photographs. Jesús Jiménez plays for the camera. All of these artists shows serious attention to their subjects and a decidedly contemporary aesthetic."

FotoFest 2008 will take place March 7 to April 20, 2008, and the series of accompanying exhibitions, mixed media installations, and film and video programs have nearly been finalized.The theme for 2008 will be China, and the evolution of photography in the country from its origins to contemporary work being shown today. Regular FotoFest programs will return as well, such as the Fine Print Auction, the International Meeting Place Portfolio Review, and auctions.
