PDNB Gallery presents John Albok: "Revisited" opening reception
This will be the fourth solo exhibition PDNB Gallery has held for John Albok. His archive, located in Dallas, has been revisited since the death of Albok’s daughter, Ilona Albok Vitarius, who managed the archive since her father’s passing in 1982. After a period of four years, Gallery Director, Burt Finger, revisited the archive to find additional photographs from this treasured collection.
The exhibition will include extraordinary vintage prints, revealing the soul of the city that was Albok’s home. Photographs of the Great Depression era are mixed with more uplifting images of children and parades and lovers in Central Park. People were his main character in the urban landscape. He brought them together with grace and humanity.
John Albok’s photographs are included in the permanent collections of many important museums including the Metropolitan Museum of New York, The Museum of the City of New York, J. Paul Getty Museum, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Dallas Museum of Art, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will on view through February 10.
