About the Book
The Texas Photographic Society's catalog for the 27th Annual Members' Only Show 2014 includes all entries accepted for exhibition. The competition was juried by Jim Casper, Founder and Editor of LensCulture, who writes, "I am hoping to discover people who are using the visual language of photography in powerful, elegant, memorable ways. And in this age of a superabundance of pictures and images, I look for photographs that are fresh and avoid a sense of déjà vu — images that shock, delight, surprise, and make me think." The contest winners were: First Place: Dianne Yudelson (Pleasanton, CA) "Under the Surface 9" Second Place: Cheryl Medow (Santa Monica, CA) "Snowy Portrait," Third Place: Francis Crisafio (Pittsburgh, PA) "HOLDUP in the HOOD #1" The following received Honorable Mentions: Jan Anderson-Paxson (Lufkin, TX) "Trees in Snow #2" Suzanne Demaree (Rockport, TX) "Sunset on Copano Bay" Deb Kreimborg (Highland Village, TX) "Escape" Linda Morrow (Long Beach, CA) "Sidewalk Transom" Dolores Smart (Santa Fe, NM) "Market Day, Mexico"
