Photographic Exhibition at The Camel Saloon

A couple of months ago, Russell Streur, the editor of an online litereary magazine called The Camel Saloon, asked me to do a photographic essay of my native land, the Texas Panhandle.  To say I was shocked at the invitation is a great understatement.  He made the request at the same time he agreed to publish two of my poems and based only on a single shot I’d taken of a crossroads on Hwy 207.

I took the request not as a statement about any sort of photographic talent I might have (which is slim and none), but as proof that the beauty of the Panhandle is recognizable even when captured by an amateur.  So, I agreed.  Even though I had no idea how to go about it.  A professional photographer friend said, “Just carry your camera around with you everywhere you go,”  which turned out to be the best advice and is exactly what I did.

 

The results have been mounted here:  20/20:  Stephanie D. Rogers Eye on West Texas.

When you get to the end of the exhibition, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and click on About the Photographs for my own thoughts about the project.

And I hope you’ll stroll through the exhibition’s home at The Camel Saloon.  There’s a good deal of talent represented there, and even one or two small pieces of my own.

Thank you for letting me know you were here.
