 International Juried Photography Exhibition

THE PORTRAIT

Entry Deadline | April 30, 2024

Exhibition Dates: June 15 - July 13, 2024

Juried by Layne Kennedy

"Making portraits is more than a physical form, it’s a silent communication in understanding and respect between the photographer and the subject. There’s an internal emotion and fire of the soul that you try to capture." – J. Grimes


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 seeks photographic art that celebrate 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.

Curadores | Directores de Praxis

La locura (enfermedad mental) es algo que nos asusta y fascina a todos. Es una palabra con la que estamos universalmente familiarizados pero que atormenta la imaginación humana. A lo largo de los siglos, en la poesía, la prosa, el drama y las artes visuales, la "locura" se ha exhibido para que todos la vean.
 

Con un efecto devastador, la enfermedad mental puede perturbar nuestras suposiciones de sentido común; crear interrupciones insoportables en la rutina de la vida diaria; y poner patas arriba nuestra experiencia y nuestras expectativas. Y, sin embargo, es esta visión del mundo al revés la que abre un universo de perspectivas únicas e inventivas ajenas a aquellas libres de interrupciones de la mente. 
 

Praxis Gallery presenta arte fotográfico que explora ideas vinculadas a la salud mental, ya sea conflicto o humor, ficción o realidad, o cualquier otra investigación literal o efímera basada en lentes. Damos la bienvenida al arte fotográfico que cuestione los supuestos convencionales sobre la salud mental o celebre la perspectiva única que solo es visible para aquellos que pueden ver la "belleza en la locura".
