FOTOFEST 2012 BIENNIAL FotoFest Exhibitions
Discoveries of the Meeting Place
FotoFest at One and Two Allen Center, 1200 Smith St, Houston, Texas
Bill McCullough, November 11th (Blue Wall), 2004

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 2012 Discoveries of the Meeting Place presents work chosen by ten reviewer/curators from the 2010 Meeting Place.

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