Friday Photos: Back to School » Geoff Winningham, High School Prom, 1973

Winningham is a Texas-based photographer and faculty member of the department of Art & Art History at Rice University in Houston. The first ten years of Winningham’s photography all dealt with subjects either unique to or characteristic of Texas: rodeos, livestock shows, professional wrestling, and high school football games. Winningham is drawn to the observation of ritual, and his photographs record our participation in some of these sustaining rites, providing pictures that are remarkable for their clarity and kindness.
