Texas Photographic Society presents the 2022 TPS National Photography Award exhibition "Wolfcamp Catalogue," a photo book and installation by Amy Kim from Lubbock, Texas, a faculty member and gallery director at UT Permian Basin in Odessa.

"Wolfcamp Catalogue" focuses on the oil industry of the Permian Basin. This West Texas region, situated over the Wolfcamp Shale, is the world’s most lucrative oil and gas producer. The Catalogue visualizes the unrelenting developments, its ecological implications, and the population’s attitudes of American and West Texas pride. But with the growing elastic demand for oil, and unexpected shocks to the system, we find, more than ever, art’s urgent need to move beyond our “above ground” certainties, to excavate our “below ground” contradictions and desires.

The exhibition will be on display through November 6.
