About the Book
The Texas Photographic Society's catalog for TPS 24: The International Competition 2015 includes all entries accepted for exhibition. The competition was juried by Dr. David L. Coleman, Director of the Wittliff Collections at Texas State University. He shares that "As a museum director, I try to apply the same criterion to all possible acquisitions—will this image, framed on the wall, stop someone dead in their tracks and inspire them to pause, even if just for a moment, and focus only on that one photograph?"
