ABOUT THE FACE OF TEXAS
The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University present The Face of Texas, their first solo exhibition of work by one of America’s premier portrait photographers, Michael O’Brien. From his latest book by the University of Texas Press, O’Brien’s portraits celebrate the individuality and independent spirit of Texans—from the rich and famous to ordinary folks—who’ve made their mark on the Lone Star State. All 48 photographs are from the Wittliff’s permanent collection, and each is accompanied by a narrative written by former Life reporter Elizabeth O’Brien. This winning combination of portraits and stories about a fascinating, eclectic mix of Texans is a fitting homage to our unique state. The Face of Texas is on view now and runs through May 15, 2015.
