Hot Dogs, Lobbies, Football and Ouagadougou at PDNB Gallery

DALLAS, TX.- For the beginning of our Fall season PDNB Gallery presents two exhibitions of different variety.

The title, "Hot Dogs, Lobbies, Football and Ouagadougou" is puzzling. This group exhibition features 4 artists presenting a series of photographs specifically focused on one subject.

Patty Carroll traveled across the country photographing the unique and funny hot dog stands that represent a truly American experience. Ira Wagner set out to document New York post-war residential buildings for the middle-class. The lobbies of these buildings are imaginative in a bizarre sense. Bill Kennedy has photographed Texas' major sport arena, the high school football field. And finally, the mysterious name in the title, Ouagadougou, does not really give a clue. David Pace traveled to Africa and documentedone of the poorest countries, Burkina Faso, where the town of Ouagadougou resides. His subject, Kiosks.

The thread that ties this show together is the approach of each photographer, to study variations of one subject. We look at these studies as typologies. A side note - three of the artists in this show were discovered at this year's FOTOFEST Biennial in Houston.

In the John Albok Gallery: Marc Riboud's (pronounced Ri-boo) exhibition will feature some of the greatest images from the 20th Century. This exhibition will give an in-depth look into his career as a Magnum photographer. The photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, who founded the Magnum photo agency, discovered and mentored Riboud. In conjunction with the Crow Collection of Asian Art's exhibition of Riboud's Tibet photographs, PDNB will explore the European and American images of his career. Included in this show is one of his signature images from Paris, 1953, of a man painting the Eiffel Tower, balancing gracefully at great heights . Also featured is an unforgettable photograph of a young woman placing a flower into the barrel of a National Guard's gun during a 1967 Vietnam War protest.
