As we move forward into the summer season, PDNB Gallery presents its first exhibition to focus entirely on the animal world.
will showcase the enigmatic portraits of animals photographed by several gallery artists. Each artist uniquely approaches their subjects in natural and studio settings. Most are straight portraits, others are blended into an environment.
While integrating photography and his passion for gardening, David Johndrow
discovered within his own garden, a small-scale world of creatures. Through the use of selective focus and meticulous attention to the environment, Johndrow was able to create stunning portraits of insects and reptiles and an occasional rooster.

photographs goats in a very regal manner in his series,Chattel. A variety of domestic goats and sheep get their close-ups, allowing us to explore the detail of their beards, wattels, eyes, horns and hair. Horan’s interest in exploring the exchange between people and animals lead to these dramatic, yet humorous portraits.
, a new artist to PDNB, will debut with her extraordinary photographs of birds. Envisioning Habitat investigates birds in environments that are not true to the feathered creatures. Through the use of digital manipulation she overlays the birds on backgrounds previously photographed from her travels. The dichotomy is surreal and quite beautiful.
Other artists included in this unique exhibition are Keith Carter
, who has always photographed animals, particularly dogs and horses, with great awe. Randal Ford’s
pop art dairy cows will offer a fun twist to the show, as well as Elliott Erwitt’s
