Submission Open June 1st - July 4th, 2020
Submit One Image - Praxis Online Gallery
For all of America’s history, people of color have been subjected to massive inequality in all forms including violence from the state and the white majority. Mass demonstrations against state violence have also been a fixture of US politics, from the civil rights movement to Ferguson, Missouri, to the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officers on May 25, 2020. The scenes from Minneapolis are just the latest chapter in that story.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that documents the struggle to bring justice to George Floyd – and document the repercussions of violence by the state, the police, and white racist agents against black and minority communities, creating the state of fear that has fueled recent protests and unrest in Minneapolis and across the nation. All genres, capture types (Smart Phone included), color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
