A Group Exhibition

February 18 - May 6, 2017

Opening Reception

Saturday, February 18, 2017 5-8 PM


In conjunction with Jeanine Michna-Bales' show reflecting on the history of the Underground Railroad, PDNB Gallery has organized a group exhibition of photographs of the South spanning many decades.

True South includes powerful images of the people and landscape of the South, from the Deep South to Texas. Several photographer's represented in this exhibition are part of PDNB Gallery's artist stable. A few artists will be new to the gallery, including Brandon Thibodeaux (b. 1981) and Ferne Koch (1913 – 2001). Thibodeaux's photographs of the Mississippi Delta will be part of the show and will be included in his upcoming book, When Morning Comes.

Ferne Koch's endearing images from Daleville, Alabama in 1950-1951 were taken while her husband was stationed there during the Korean War. She made friends with the townspeople, photographing them in the tradition of Walker Evans.

True South includes portraits of people from Appalachia, prisoners in Huntsville prison, surreal Southern manors of Louisiana, Juke Joints in Mississippi, and 3rd Ward neighbors in Houston, Texas.

Artists included:

Keith Carter, William Greiner, Ferne Koch, Earlie Hudnall, Jr., Clarence John Laughlin, Danny Lyons, Birney Imes, Brandon Thibodeaux, Jack Delano, Shelby Lee Adams, Paul Greenberg, Peter Brown, Jack Ridley, William Christenberry.
