March 10 - April 23, 2006
FOTOFEST2006 is the eleventh International Biennial of Photography and Photo-related Art in Houston, Texas. In 2006, there are two themes. The Earth and Artists Responding to Violence. They are independent and inter-connected.
The capacity of human society to inflict violence upon itself and the earth is expanding with the ever increasing spread of technology and population. The physical and mythic force of earth presents itself in art in many guises. FotoFest 2006 is presenting work that engages The Earth metaphorically and figuratively.The art encompasses mixed-media work, classical photography, video and film. It addresses both human and non-human life in broad existential ways as well as issues of land use and geophysical history.
