Willie Nelson: The Face of Texas (Photographs by Michael O’Brien) #theWitliffCollection

The Face of Texas is the Wittliff Collections’ first solo exhibition of work by one of America’s finest portrait photographers, Michael O’Brien.  From his latest book by the University of Texas Press, these images 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.  Among them are ranchers and farmers, conservationists, church members, bar owners, artists, schoolteachers, performers, writers, athletes, and business owners.

Each of the 48 photographs on view at the Wittliff Collections is accompanied by a narrative written by former Life reporter Elizabeth O’Brien.  This winning combination of portraits and stories about a fascininating, eclectic mix of Texans is a fitting homage to our unique state.

The Face of Texas is on view at the Wittliff Collections January 12 – May 15, 2015
