With a title like “Life, Death, Beauty and Garbage,” viewers wouldn’t be amiss to assume they’ll be seeing everything but the kitchen sink in Dallas-based photographer Geof Kern’s latest exhibition. Kern had his first successful local show at PDNB back in 2014, and this latest look at his oeuvre is a distillation of his incredibly conceptual style, one that has clearly been copied over the years by other photographers.

Anniversary Exhibition: PDNB Gallery Celebrates 20 Years

Posted By Blog User, Tuesday, June 2, 2015

20th Anniversary Exhibition 

Exhibition Dates:  May 16 - June 20, 2015


Reception:  Saturday, May 16

5:00 - 8:00 pm 


Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery opened 1995 out of a small house in Uptown Dallas with a show of Joel-Peter Witkin and a group show of Latin American artists.  The gallery later moved to the Design District and its current location on Dragon Street.  PDNB Gallery grew with the evolving Dallas Art Scene; the city is now home to a vibrant and multi-faceted arts-community, including a host of galleries, cultural institutions, and the internationally recognized Dallas Art Fair.


PDNB Gallery celebrates its 20th anniversary with a show of pinnacle works drawn in the most-part from private collections, including a work from its first show with Witkin, Wife of Cain, and work by the Gallery's most popular artist and Texas-native Keith Carter.  Carter had a memorable sellout show in 1997.  Other notable artists who's work will be on view include Chema Madoz, Esteban Pastorino Diaz, Bill Owens, Marta Maria Perez Bravo, George Krause, Jeffrey Silverthorne, Lee Friedlander, Misty Keasler, Deliah Montoya, and John Albok.

Image Information:

Bill Owens, Richie 1971,  “I don’t fee that Richie playing with guns will have a negative effect on his personality. (He already wants to be a policeman). His childhood gun-playing won’t make him into a cop-shooter. By playing with guns he learns to socialize with other children. I find the neighbors who are offended by Richie’s gun, either the father hunts or their kids are the first to take Richie’s gun and go off and play with it."     | Courtesy of PDNB Gallery

PDNB Gallery Discovers Photographic Gem

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 19, 2014
Most relevant photographic discovery since View from the Window at Le Gras

On view at PDNB Gallery through August 30, 2014

Discovered several years ago by PDNB Gallery Director, Burt Finger, this early photograph has been under investigation.  Mr. Finger has spent the past few years traveling the world, and visiting museum and private collections to establish the print in a timeline of photographic history.  His exhaustive research has led him to conclude that this discovery is indeed one of a kind.  No other print like it exists.

PDNB Gallery and Mr. Finger are trumpeting this photographic find as the most important image in photographic history since the famed View from the Window at Le Gras made by the father of photography Nicéphore Niépce's.  This work is on view at the gallery through August 30 and is being displayed as the View from the Window at Le Gras is at the Harry Ransom center at the University of Texas, in a darkly lit private viewing space.  Due to the sensitive nature of the print, reproductions are impossible, so no images are available of the work.  Curious viewers will need to make a pilgrimage to view the priceless work in person.

For more information on this thrilling discovery, please visit PDNB Gallery.
