A Sense of Place

Photographic Exploration Project

Berlin,

In our photographic practice, we often feel a special resonance with the places depicted in our images. They exert on us a certain attraction that can sometimes be used as a starting point for our creative process. But are those photographs really about the place itself, or about the relationship we have with it? Why are some places vibrating within us more than others? Is it because they carry a certain symbolism, or a feeling of belonging? Because they are related to a specific time in history and became a place of collective memory? Or because we have a kind of emotional relationship with them, in that they tell something about our roots, identity, family or personal story?

Frames Within Frames

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

Speaking of the power of photography, Garry Winogrand once said, “Putting four edges around a collection of information or facts transforms it.” Let’s take that a step further: what happens when you put a frame—in the form of a doorway, window, mirror, casket, another picture, or some other structure—in the photograph itself? It may intensify the focus on the thing framed, but what about what’s happening in the margins between the interior frame and the edge of the picture? How does the composition work as a whole? How do the elements inside and outside the framing device interact? What has the photographer gained by including a frame within the picture rather than making it the border of the entire image?

Praxis seeks the submission of photographic art that explores a frame or multiple frames within an image as the conceptual basis for the aesthetic expression. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Throughout the ages, women have held the world on their shoulders. Females are the essence of life, representing softness, unconditional love, strength, courage, resilience, and hope- the world would not be what it is today without them.

And, in all the roles a woman symbolizes, she has been a constant source of inspiration to artists since the beginning of time. Show us SHE from your perspective.

Personality: Contemporary Portraiture

PH21 Gallery

Budapest, Hungary

Portraiture emerged as one of the most prominent genres of depictive media early in the history of the visual arts, and the tacit or explicit rules, conventions and cultural expectations have always influenced the ways by which artists approached the genre. Photography is no exception; numerous different and characteristic styles of portraiture emerged throughout the history of the medium. Today we live in an exciting new era for portraiture. There has never been a time in human history when so many portraits and self-portraits were produced day after day as in the era of digital technologies. Photographers have responded to the cultural, social and technological changes by reinterpreting the age-old genre of portraiture, and it is always an exciting and rewarding task to organize an exhibition for some of the recent achievements in the field.

Shadows enhance the relationships of subjects in an image, they give definition and dimension, which complements the quality of the light values.

Femalia

Praxis Gallery

Minneapolis, MN

We are programmed to understand gender and femininity within narrow and restrictive definitions. Photographs, both historical and contemporary, often reinforce these definitions and boundaries that no longer serve us.

Photography has the power to transcend all manner of boundaries. It can blur minuscule lines between otherwise dichotomous realms of physical and philosophical space. If we are to reflect on photography’s capacity to challenge concepts of gender and femininity, we enter into an extraordinary opportunity to re-envision and expand our understanding of all who identify as women. We can confront our programmed understandings and reinterpret, both what is in front of the camera and what is behind it.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art created by or about women image-makers, including trans-women, femme/feminine-identifying, genderqueer, and non-binary lens-based photographic artists. This is an inclusive call that is open to all that apply. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The Natural World

Month of Photography

Denver, CO

“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this (20th) century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.” ~ Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Many of us in the 21st century turn to nature for nurture, perhaps because we have an innate desire to commune with our surroundings, and at this time in particular, to appreciate what we have and bring awareness to what we are losing. Species are disappearing at 1,000 to 10,000 times the natural rate, with as many as 30 to 50 percent of all possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century.

The veneration of fleeting moments of beauty is now intensified by the quickening pace of loss. To what do you pay tribute and seek to bring attention? Where do you find your sense of place, solace or disruption? What moves, replenishes, or disturbs you? How do you express what resonates with your soul in the natural world, be it the birds, bees, plants, trees, or other creatures? What is the story only you can tell?

Patterns and Shadows

New York Center for Photographic Arts

New York, NY

Walking anywhere in the world at different times of day you can see dramatic changes as the light goes from midday bright to dusk. Early morning/late afternoon light can transform a simple scene to one of great interest as shadows grow longer and shorter. Consider city streets with shadows of tall buildings crossing sidewalks, cars, busses and people. Similarly bright light casting shadows on a flight of stairs creates a canvas of black and white stripes. Just as powerful are shots where the impact of the image is derived from patterns in the composition such as the line-up of palm trees in the tropics with the shadows cast along a sandy beach, rows of theater chairs etc. Different images, interesting interpretations of your own shadow are welcome as well. Be creative – send us your best.
