About the Book
The Texas Photographic Society's catalog for The Alternative Processes Competition 2015 includes all entries accepted for exhibition. The competition was juried by Christopher James, Director of the MFA Photography Program at Lesley University College of Art and Design and also author of "The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes". James shares that, "Alternative process image making has its heartbeat intimately allied to a tradition of making images by hand, using light and chemistry. It is driven by a curiosity to see where a process, or its integration with other media, will lead the artist and her imagination."
