Up to 5 Honorable Mentions may be awarded
It is an honor to be asked to judge the TPS 33rd Annual Members' Only Show. This exhibition has emerged as one of the most reflective presentations of currently practiced photographic vision, presenting not only established and professional work from the members of Texas Photographic Society, but also that of member photographers who are challenging the established norms of exhibition and visualization of art. Recognizing this wide variety, I expect to be generous in my evaluation and select work that represents, in my opinion, the best of photographic endeavor from the traditional to the conceptual.
Let the entries begin - I am excited about seeing the work!
