Distinctive Image

Quarterly, the Managing Editor of the PSA Journal chooses a current PSA member to be featured in the Distinctive Image Series. Those selected must have earned a PSA ROPA Distinction and have a photography "specialty." Features include the selected member's photographs, biography, photographic techniques and an artist's statement. If an image is suitable, it will be used on the issue's cover.
