Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery presents Fred Baldwin: "The Forgotten War - A Marine in Korea"
In conjunction with PDNB Gallery's current exhibition, "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," will present a talk about his experience in the Korean War.
Fred Baldwin, born 1929, is the co-founder of the FotoFest Biennial in Houston, Texas. He has recently released a memoir, Dear Mr. Picasso: An Illustrated Love Affair with Freedom. Fred Baldwin served as a Marine in Korea.
This is a unique opportunity to hear a soldier’s story from the "Forgotten War." This is the third educational program offered by PDNB Gallery in regards to the war photography exhibition, "Where Have all the Flowers Gone."
The added bonus to the program is the book signing event for Fred Baldwin’s memoir that was released this year. The title relates to a life-changing event when Baldwin met the famous Pablo Picasso during his last year in college, 1955.
Baldwin became a photojournalist and eventually settled in Houston, Texas with his wife, Wendy Watriss. Both Fred and Wendy were responsible for co-founding the very successful International FotoFest Biennial in 1983, a photography festival that sweeps across the city of Houston. The next Biennial is scheduled for next Spring, 2020, celebrating photography from African nations.
