On the Road with Texas Highways

A Tribute to True Texas

Text and photographs by  J. Griffis Smith

Introduction by E. Dan Klepper

In a short line of Texas Highways distinguished photo editors, J. Griffis Smith has been 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.”

Celebrating the roaming life of a professional magazine photographer, Texas Highways 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.

An essay by E. Dan Klepper conveys a sense of how photo editors have worked at Texas Highways and how Griff Smith’s quirky, creative nature has helped to shape the magazine's style and message.

J. GRIFFIS SMITH was the photo editor at Texas Highways magazine in Austin, where he worked for thirty years.
