I am very honored to be one of the featured artists in our great city’s 175th anniversary celebration presented by FotoFest and Houston Center for Photography.  I have a great amount of devotion to Houston and it’s people and I would not be where I am today without you. For more information about this exhibit on display please see FotoFest information below.

Title – Michel and Billye Halbouty Photo by Evin Thayer PEOPLE: Contemporary Photographers Looking at Houston How can an art exhibit reflect the people of Houston as the city celebrates its 175th anniversary? When confronted with this question, the staff at FotoFest and Houston Center for Photography turned to contemporary artists who have created bodies of work about the people of Houston. These photographers explore the cultures, sub-cultures, interest groups, and leaders that make up the intricate and diverse fabric of Houston. This exhibition is about the 15 photographers as much as it is about the individuals portrayed in these images. The photographers have sought people out, camera in hand, because they want to document the stories of individuals and groups of people. Some find inspiration in their subjects, some capture aspects of families and communities, while others highlight Houston’s well-known and unsung leaders. When asked, “What’s your favorite part about Houston?” the answer is most often, “The people.” PEOPLE: Contemporary Photographers Looking at Houston celebrates the people of Houston.
