Indian Photographers to be the Focus of FotoFest


The FotoFest Biennial in Houston has announced its list of 48 artists who will participate in its central show, due to open in March. The organisers are touting it as “one of the largest exhibitions of contemporary photography by artists of Indian origin ever presented in the US.”

The event will provide an insight into the most diverse and rapidly evolving nation on the planet. It will feature the works of photographers like Indu Antony, who explores issues of gender and sexuality through portraits of drag kings, Asif Khan who has documented Tibetan refugee camps, and Max Kandhola who dissects racial dynamics and immigration in the United Kingdom.

This year, the fest was curated by Sunil Gupta. FotoFest Biennial has developed a reputation for throwing light on international photographic traditions that have drawn relatively less attention in the United States.
