Sensuous Geographies: The Nude

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center
Minneapolis, MN

 

The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art – specifically in photography – has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.

 Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica – just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Intentional Spaces

PhotoPlace Gallery
Middlebury, VT

 

Humans create spaces to serve many purposes: to make us feel safe, comforted, fearful, humbled, awestruck, or inspired. The space may be a cozy reading nook in the corner, the inspirational size of a vast public building, the cold impersonality of an examination room, a garden room walled by a riot of plants, or a space that exists only in your imagination. We respond in some emotional way to all of them. For this exhibition, we seek images of spaces that evoke a range of emotions. All capture methods and processes are welcome.

We are very pleased that Laura Moya will jury and curate this exhibition. She will select approximately 35 images for the Gallery Exhibition, and 35 for our Online Gallery. The recipients of the Juror’s Award and the Director’s Award will each be entitled to a personal portfolio review by Ms. Moya.

Analog Forever Magazine Online Group Exhibition “Compelling Dreams”


 

We are excited to announce that our May online group exhibition, “Compelling Dreams”, is sponsored by Lomography! With their support, we will be giving away a Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter Medium Format Camera to the winner of this online exhibition! To enter, all you need to do is read and respond to the following prompt with your analog photography:

For this exhibition, we are looking to explore the results of photographers who push the envelope with their photography in either a technical or social sense. Viewing their photographs should take us through a portal straight to their consciousness (or subconscious) where we can be shocked, moved, and even confused by the unexpected results they achieve with their camera, subject, and process of choice. We invite you to submit two analog created images that draw outside the lines of what is expected, to create a compelling force that draws the viewer into your world. The photographs submitted can range from avant-garde experiments to documentary exposés of individuals or groups living outside of social norms. The only limiting factor to this group exhibition is your own interpretation of its theme.

The best of these images will be showcased in an online show curated by Russell Joslin, photographer and founder of Skeleton Key Press

ArtAscent: Art & Literature Journal “Abstract”


 

Abstractions are all around us. Ideas can be abstract; existing as an idea, feeling or quality but not having a tangible existence. Some conversations can be abstract, vague and theoretical and not based on particular examples or facts. And of course, there is abstract art which evokes feelings without trying to realistically represent the appearance of people or things. Abstract art, like poetry, offers a fragment of a mysteriously familiar narrative without directly revealing it in a realistic way. Reveal your most ABSTRACT thoughts.

12th Rencontres de Bamako: Streams of Consciousness


 

Imagine the artistic practice of photographic stream of consciousness as ‘thinking in images’. The art piece (the photograph, photographs), as an expression of an interior monologue, the artist’s sensory reactions to external events.

The image as a capture of streams of consciousness having the possibility of revealing the worlds of thoughts and circumstances, the universe of histories and geographies that birthed the photograph.
For this biennial the focus is on the African world. Africa as a planetary concept related to people of African origin, spread over the world in Asia, Oceania, Europe, the Americas, the African continent. Can photography reveal the Streams of Consciousness that flow from and beyond the shores of the African continent?

HUMAN REPRESENTATION – PORTRAIT

Midwest Center for Photography
Witchita, Kansas

 

The act of capturing a moment in time through taking a photograph of someone is one of the highest gestures that a person can give. We all have the people in our lives that are important to us personally and also find people who are visually interesting. Documenting the likeness of these people as well as capturing the pure personality of a person through a range of emotional gestures is a phenomenal experience. This exhibition seeks to represent the human likeness in all of its forms, whether it is a documentary approach, a snapshot genre, if it is a fashion statement, an editorial statement, or simply a straight forward compositional body study, we are interested to exhibit the photographs of a wide range of people.

Every year Manifest offers an opportunity just for graduate students to exhibit at our gallery in Cincinnati. This 13th installment of the Master Pieces project will continue to reveal the intensity and professionalism of students working towards their terminal academic degree in the field of art or design. Often the most exceptional work comes out of these artists’ immersion in their culture of study and intellectual pursuit. Manifest’s goal, therefore, is to select works that set the standard of quality that the artist is expected to maintain throughout his or her professional career and justify the degree of Master. The full-color hardcover Manifest Exhibition Annual publication, a ‘yearbook’ for the season, will serve as a visual documentation of these artists’ own benchmarks for years to come.

In the In-Between ‘ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE’

Gravy Studio & Gallery
Philadelphia, PA

 

The vast majority of photographs we see in our day-to-day lives present idealized versions of their subject matters, often making the world seem cleaner, more orderly, and more beautiful than it actually is. It’s difficult to grasp the profound influence we are subject to within our inescapable media-diets of beautiful images that offer promises of something better.

How can photography be used to reflect on notions of paradise, desire, and fantasy?  What roles do these promises play in our daily lives, and in our current societal conditions? What’s the value of idyllic spaces? What is the cultural and personal value of a photograph that makes the world look better than it is? Who benefits from notions of paradise, and who doesn’t?  Where do we want to escape to, and what are we running from?

In the In-Between is seeking photographic work of any process that explores notions of paradise, idealization, fantasy, and escape.

N.Y. Photo Curator Call for Entry Theme: ‘The Poetry of Shadows’ curated by Sandrine Hermand-Grisel

Hermand-Grisel says, “Light and shadow are key ingredients to the art of photography. From dark and melancholic images to abstract designs, shadows can work in a variety of ways but somehow there is always poetry to it. Show me images in which the shadow is called to play a role that is not only metaphorical or conceptual but also an instrument of your composition. Enhance the relationships of your subjects and express your poetic vision of the world surrounding you.”

Dusk to Dawn

New York Center for Photographic Arts
New York, NY

 

Pick up a camera for the first time and odds are the images taken will be in full daylight.  Learn about sun glare, flat light, shadow…..  But then your world expands as you explore opportunities from the rest of the 24-hour day from DUSK to DAWN. That time, from that bewitching hour when it isn’t quite dark, through the night, to the early blue semi brightness that envelops your world in morning, provides huge opportunity for spectacular images.

Capture the softness of light at dusk and at dawn. Take long exposures of the moon and stars in the sky.  Create night photos of lit office buildings, headlights in motion, streets, houses etc. and find a wonderful subject where a black night sky provides a dramatic background. First and last peeks of sunlight can provide some amazing opportunities as well.

The New York Center for Photographic Art (NYC4PA) invites photographers world-wide to submit images using any photographic process (print, image transfer, emulsion transfer, encaustic, black and white, color etc.). Winners will receive a total of $3,000 in cash awards, be featured in the NYC4PA Online Gallery and Award Winners Catalog. The Grand Prize winning image will be posted on the NYC4PA home page.  Cash prize winning and Juror Selection images will be featured in a New York Gallery Exhibition at Jadite Galleries September 24 – October 5,  2019.
