Publisher Synopsis

"O'Brien's work does not explicitly comment on the passage of time, but the theme pervades this new volume as we read of where many of the photograph's long-lost subjects ended up. For the Read more...

   schema:description "The Face of Texas celebrates the individuality and independent spirit of Texas through compelling portraits of its people by Michael O'Brien, one of America's premier portrait photographers. In this acclaimed photo essay, he assembles a gallery of noteworthy Texans both native and naturalized, ranging from former president George W. Bush and first ladies and Laura Bush and Lady Bird Johnson, to famous figures such as Willie Nelson, Larry McMurtry, George Strait, Tim Duncan, Kinky Friedman, and Beyoncé, to ordinary folks who've made their mark on Texas as ranchers and farmers, cheerleaders and beauty queens, conservationists, church members, bar and restaurant owners, Odd Fellows, schoolteachers, artists and writers, business owners, and athletes. For this new edition of The Face of Texas, O'Brien has added seventeen new portraits and six updated photographs of people from the first edition. Writer and former Life reporter Elizabeth O'Brien offers insightful verbal vignettes to accompany the new portraits and also brings us up to date with the lives of the rest of the subjects. This winning combination of images and stories about a fascinating, eclectic mix of Texans is a fitting homage to a unique state and an essential addition to every Texas bookshelf.--Amazon.com."@en ;
