 International Juried Photography Exhibition

Narratives

Open by Appointment
Exhibition Dates: Nov 21st - Dec 7th, 2020

Juror | Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusion are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about - What is being presented within the frame to the viewer – and what is being left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.

 

Praxis Gallery presents photographic works that explore the development of visual narratives through the still image. Stories may take any shape or form; they may be literal or fantasy, documentary or fiction; complex or minimal.

APPOINTMENT REQUIRED

Brandon's capacity to see the world as an engineer and as a self-taught photographer brings a unique sense of style and imagination to every image he captures. Brandon’s work is only limited by nighttime, but he encompasses a variety of themes and techniques in his work, including urban photography, landscape photography, astrophotography, and light painting. This unique balance of engineering and art has led to Brandon’s work being featured in a variety of solo and juried exhibitions around the world, including at Artios Gallery in New York, NY, the Midwest Center of Photography in Wichita, KS, and the Glasgow Gallery of Photography in Glasgow, UK.

Aaron Nesheim | This Could Have Been Avoided

This project is from my ongoing documentation of the communities efforts to improve the lives of communities of color, LGBTQ, those who are houseless, and other marginalized groups. My aim is to shed light on those working toward reforms. To amplify the voices of those whose efforts fly under the radar. When I dreamed of becoming a photojournalist, those dreams always included documenting struggles in far away places. These last four years have reminded me that there are plenty of struggles only a few steps out of my front door.

Pictures from Sylvester Manor

A Solo Exhibition by Gary Beeber
Opening Night Reception: To Be Announced
Exhibition Dates: Sept 25 - Oct 16th, 2021
Sylvester Manor, Shelter Island

When living in Sag Harbor, NY one of my great pleasures was taking the 10 minute ferry trip to Shelter Island (whose sleepy beauty starkly contrasts with the glitz and glamor of the Hamptons) and exploring/documenting Sylvester Manor. The island was originally inhabited by indigenous peoples, but was officially established as a slave holding provisioning plantation in 1652 by Nathaniel Sylvester, a sugar merchant from Barbados, who purchased the entire island for 1600 pounds of sugar. Sylvester Manor has been in the Sylvester family for 11 generations. Descendants of Nathaniel Sylvester used slaves to work the plantation until early in the 19th century when slavery was abolished in the north.People relate to this series because of Sylvester Manor’s history and mystery. I was drawn to it for those same reasons, and of course it’s sad, dark haunting beauty.

I am an architect, with a masters in sociology and PhD in urban geography. I am considered as a social photographer. My photos are a look at someone’s world, a journey into their space and their life; an attempt to build a story without affection, as part of a social commitment. I present different visual stories that intersect in the streets and in their plurality create a certain connection.

 

I want to build visual bridges that bring closer different people, places and words, in an attempt to unite and integrate through symbolism, imagery and space. The essence of parks, markets, religious celebrations, city functions, and movements of people, all reflect a way of being that after all have too many similarities and points in common in many parts of the world. I hope these images arouse more suspicions than certainties in a way that is possible to speculate with them to open paths of contrasting narratives.
