HOUSTON, TEXAS - NOVEMBER 23, 2010 - FotoFest begins its 2011 exhibition season with an international triad of

Gilbert Garcin, alongside the work of one of Prague's heralded masters of staged photography, Miro Švolík, and U.S. artist Colin Blakely, whose whimsical images make humorous commentary on everyday life.
