Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery presents Geof Kern: Life, Death, Beauty and Garbage Opening Reception
PDNB Gallery presents Geof Kern's second solo exhibition this fall. It will highlight work from 1987-1997. This time frame marks one of Geof Kern's (b. 1950, New York City) most recognized periods of innovative fashion, advertising, and editorial photography in his career.
His photographs are conceptual, often including surrealist references. Kern manipulated the medium (pre-photoshop) using multiple exposure, collage, photo sculpture and dioramas that soon catapulted his presence in the commercial photography world. His work was highly sought after by some of the most acclaimed art directors of the era including John Jay, Fred Woodward, B.W. Honeycutt, D.J. Stout (Texas Monthly) and Rip Georges.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 8.
