In a short list of Texas Highways magazine’s distinguished photo editors, J. Griffis Smith was described by a fellow photographer as a “galactic force,” reveling in taking pictures of everything Texas wherever the magazine’s assignments took him, all with the goal of inspiring “folks to travel.”
The new book “On the Road with Texas Highways” Celebrates the roaming life of a professional magazine photographer. The magazine has joined with Smith to assemble a collection of signature images from three decades of work, including memorable pictures of Texas icons, landscapes, people, and historical and cultural destinations.
Smith is the photo editor at Texas Highways magazine in Austin, where he has worked for 30 years.
The flexbound book is $29.95 and available at www.tamupress.com.
