Celebrate the unique beauty of the world's arid and semiarid landscapes. Since 2001, the Office of International Affairs at Texas Tech University has curated this premiere juried photographic exhibition of peoples and places of the world’s dry lands. The 21st annual "High and Dry Photography Exhibit" has attracted hundreds of artists from across the United States and around the world, all of whom have been asked to respond to some aspect of life in an arid or a semiarid region. Images were taken in areas as remote and exotic as Morocco and as near and familiar as Caprock Canyon. The opening reception takes place Dec. 3.
