PDNB Gallery presents Paul Sokal: "Before iPhone" opening reception
Paul Sokal has been collecting old relics from his childhood, and not-too-recent past. These objects are his subject matter for this series, "Before iPhone." Like that scent of baking cookies, these objects from a time machine trigger memories of the analog culture many of us grew up with.
In a studio setting, Sokal places these archetypal relics against a stark white background. The resulting photograph is presented in a large color print. The 1960’s “Princess” model telephone has a vibrant yellow color that was much a part of Pop culture. Seen in a large size, it is even more vivid and eye-catching. Recently this series was exhibited at the Grace Museum in Abilene, Texas. This is the first time Paul Sokal’s photographs have been exhibited at PDNB Gallery.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through December 29.
