The Portrait

Opening Night Reception: Dec 9th, 2017
Exhibition Dates: Dec 10th - Jan 12th, 2018

Theme | The Portrait

 

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.” Praxis Gallery presents photographic art that celebrates the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject.

The Decisive Moment

Opening Night Reception: Nov 2nd, 2017
Exhibition Dates: Nov 3rd - Nov 30th, 2017

Theme | The Decisive Moment

 

Twentieth century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described   the   decisive   moment   as   ‘the    simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

 

While the concept of the decisive moment is often associated with dynamic, synchronic activity captured in an instant - it may just as well apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm.

Praxis Gallery & Photo Arts Center Presents

By David L. Parker, MD

October 5th - October 29th, 2017
Artist Talk & Reception October 5th, 6:00 - 8:30 

Since 1992, Dr. David Parker has pursued dual careers: working as an occupational physician and  epidemiologist  in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and photographing working children around the world.

 

His  most  recent  photographs were taken  on  a  trip  to  the diamond mines of the Tikonko and Kona chiefdoms in Sierra Leone. This work represents Dr. Parker’s continuing efforts to record the immediate and long-term effects of child labor  on vulnerable communities.
