Stunning Photo Exhibit Showcases Texas' Big Bend
Big Bend Photos was on display at the Houston Museum of Natural Science from June 19, 2010 through Jan. 23, 2011.
Located in far West Texas, the region of Texas that is embraced by the big bend of the Rio Grande is one of the most spectacular areas in our country.
Big Bend National Park was founded in 1944. The grandeur, remoteness, rich history and dramatic ecological diversity the park encompasses have caused it to take on almost mythic status with travelers who find their way there.
Houston photographer Michael H. Marvins has made the long drive to Big Bend many times and has captured the heart of the land as represented in this selection from his portfolio and book by the same name.
