Frank Döring: I Would Redesign That Udder is a 2017 exhibit at the University of Kentucky Art Museum which says: "Frank Döring finds a microcosm of the human??? -- and animal -- condition at the state and county fairs that take place all summer long within a day's drive of his Lexington home....With empathy, sensitivity, and humor, Döring has been photographing the champion steers, greased piglets, sheep rodeos, and garish midways since 2011. In his images, children expertly guide farm animals around the show ring, teenagers use blow dryers to fluff up heifers, and whole families form tableaux vivants at concession stands and carnival games."
