About the Book
The Texas Photographic Society's catalog for TPS 23: The International Competition 2014 includes all entries accepted for exhibition. The competition was juried by Susan kae Grant, Professor and Head of Photography & Book Arts at Texas Woman’s University. She explains that "As an artist and educator, I look for images that are evidence of the artist’s vision with the power of connecting real world observations with the imagination. I love it when an image shows me something I have never seen before and empowers me to see in an entirely new and profound way." The contest winners were: First Place: Cheryl Medow (Santa Monica, CA) "Roseate Spoonbillls" Second Place: Dolores Smart (Santa Fe, NM) "Generations, Turkey" Third Place: Diana Bloomfield (Raleigh, NC) "Girl in Mirror" The following received Honorable Mentions: Linda Alterwitz (Las Vegas, NV) "Untitled #16 from the project WHILE I AM STILL" Peter B.
