The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace. We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection. Something closed must retain our memories, while leaving them their original value as images. Memories of the outside world will never have the same tonality as those of home and, by recalling these memories, we add to our store of dreams contained in our experience of home. Gaston Bachelard

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the meaning of home- be it a physical space, a sense or feeling, an idea of family or, perhaps, an exploration of the complicated relationship that many have with the concept of home.  A broad interpretation of the idea and place of home is encouraged. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

LANDSCAPES

Submission Deadline: Dec 31ST, 2022
Exhibition Dates: Feb 18TH - Mar 4TH, 2023

Juror: Douglas Beasley
“Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing - or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing, and regret.

 

Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape - both as a place, or an idea - as a literal expression or conceptual iteration. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​

EMPTY PLACES : ABANDONED SPACES

Submission Closed

 Dec 12th 4pm CST 2022

Exhibition Dates: Jan 21st - Feb 4th, 2023

Juror: Orin Rutchick

Through the visual representation of abandoned spaces, artifacts of history are at once fresh and new, ancient and decayed. The past continues to live in these forsaken, ruined, or empty spaces and we ask—Who were the people who lived and worked here? What were their lives like? What were their stories? What happened to them in these spaces?

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the visual and social significance of abandoned space-where derelict factories, churches, private houses or other empty places serve as the basis for creative investigation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
