This month we’re pleased to partner with 1814 Magazine to bring a traveling exhibit of the works of Geof Kern entitled “Blue Skies” to Dallas. Kern, born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1950, opened his first studio in Dallas in 1978 after graduating from Brooks Institute, the former photography school in Santa Barbara California. His early career of fashion and editorial photography let to advertising assignments worldwide on a wide range of subject matter. Professional recognition came through editorial work for magazines such as Esquire, GQ, (the early) Detour, Beach Culture, and Rolling Stone. With a career now spanning 40 years, Kern has photographed many award-winning campaigns for clients such as Bloomingdales New York, Selfridges London, Matsuda Tokyo, Neiman-Marcus, Mercedes France, Acura, Ford Europe, and Interface International.
Kern’s hallmark style is creating images with strong contrast in scale and unexpected elements. Twelve 40×30″ giclee prints from the “Art of Fashion” campaign, which embody his style, will be on display at NorthPark Center in front of Neiman Marcus until the end of the month.
