About the Book
The Texas Photographic Society's catalog for the 25th Annual Members' Only Show 2012 includes all entries accepted for exhibition. The competition was juried by Henry Horenstein, Professor of Photography at the Rhode Island School of Design, who writes, "What I look for is an artist’s intention, passion, and commitment. Does he or she have a stake in the work beyond trying to satisfy the viewer? Is the work personal? Or, is it mimicking what other people are doing? In other words, when I see a body of work I want to know what the work is about - and through that I want to know who the person is who created it."
