In conjunction with Jeanine Michna-Bales' show reflecting on the history of the Underground Railroad, PDNB Gallery has organized a group exhibition of photographs of the South spanning many decades.
True South includes powerful images of the people and landscape of the South, from the Deep South to Texas. Several photographer's represented in this exhibition are part of PDNB Gallery's artist stable. A few artists will be new to the gallery, including Brandon Thibodeaux (b. 1981) and Ferne Koch (1913 – 2001). Thibodeaux's photographs of the Mississippi Delta will be part of the show and will be included in his upcoming book, When Morning Comes.
True South includes portraits of people from Appalachia, prisoners in Huntsville prison, surreal Southern manors of Louisiana, Juke Joints in Mississippi and Third Ward neighbors in Houston, Texas.
