 International Juried Photography Exhibition

MOTION > BLUR

Entry Deadline July 15, 2024 11:59CST. 
Exhibition Dates: Aug. 17 - Sept. 14,

Curated by: Praxis Directors
In most cases, photography is used to “freeze time,” with a still image. Motion in photography creates a paradox: the image is a frozen moment in time but what is captured is an object that is a blur of motion – an apparent streaking, bending, distorting and /or movement of light and objects in the foreground or background of the image frame. Blur can demonstrate the velocity of movement. It can convey the emotional dimensions of the subject photographed, presenting dream like qualities by invoking the surreal and transitory nature of time passing.

 

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic art that demonstrates the fundamental qualities that make motion & blur a compelling element of contemporary photography. All genres, capture types, black & white, and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic, and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

THE STREETS

Entry Deadline Aug. 4, 2024 11:59 CST. 
Exhibition Dates: Sept. 21 - Oct. 12, 2024

"Street Photography became recognized as a genre in its own right during the early 1930's. Street Photography is unique in the way it is associated with the photographer's skill in capturing something of the mystery and aura of everyday city living. The Street Photographer is then often likened to the historical figure of the flâneur: namely someone who mingles anonymously amongst the crowd observing and recording the ways the unsuspecting city dweller interacts with his or her environment."

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the genre of street photography from all angles, including people, urban structure, and documentary subject matter. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. Juried by: Valérie Jardin

THE SHADOW ASPECT

Notification: July 12, 2024
Exhibition Dates: Aug. 17 – Sept. 14, 2024

‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses, and memories.’ - Elie Wiesel.

 

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual, and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern, and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. Juried by: Elizabeth Flinsch
