Photo Exhibit Chronicles Life in Former Freedman’s Town

Photo Exhibit Chronicles Life in Former Freedman’s Town

FotoFest – Houston’s six-week-long, international biennial photography festival – is underway now through April 27, with photography exhibits and events around the city.

This year’s FotoFest focuses on contemporary Arab video, photography and mixed media art. But there are exhibits focused on numerous other themes, including one that documents life in a little-known area near The Woodlands called Tamina.

Houston Matters’ Michael Hagerty tells us more about the exhibit by photographer Marti Corn called The Ground on Which I Stand, and why Corn decided she needed to tell the neighborhood’s story.
