NYC4PA BLACK AND WHITE 2022

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Photography, in its infancy, was entirely about black and white or monochrome images.  Color was an after print add on. NYC4PA, with this call, is once again focusing on one of our favorite themes - Black and White celebrating those images still so central to the field of photography despite the introduction of color film and the vast array of image capture and post process adjustment software.

Send us your monochrome images where all the emotion, texture and beauty are expressed in shades from white to dark. No matter if your original image was shot with tri x, a digital SLR, or your phone, if the end product is a terrific monochrome image (Black and White or Sepia), it fits the call.

As with all NYC4PA calls all 2D photo mediums are welcome.

BLACK & WHITE | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | Sept 30TH, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | Oct 12TH, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Nov 19TH - Dec 3RD

Theme: Black & White | Juror: Robi Chakraborty

Half a century after the advent of color film, black and white & monochromatic photography continues to capture our collective imagination. Utilizing tone, contrast, texture and shape, monochromatic photography strips its subject to only the most essential visual elements; revealing a sense of soul, substance and meaning – separate from the shifting sentiments, symbolism and cultural associations of color imagery.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that demonstrate the fundamental qualities that make black and white & monochromatic photography an enduring, contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR | ROBI CHAKRABORTY

Originally from India, Robi Chakraborty studied photography under the prestigious O.P. Sharma at Triveni Kala Sangam Photography in New Delhi. He began his career doing both commercial and press photography in the early 1980s, but through wanderlust and with a spirit to explore, Robi became drawn to photographing the people in the cities and villages of his native India. Taking roads less traveled, Robi sought out cultures and ways of life that were quickly becoming lost in the contemporary, more homogenized world of today. 

 

Having lived in India, Nepal, Africa and the US, Robi portrays his global view of the world through his photography by celebrating both the diversity of his subjects yet beautifully revealing the striking similarities and capturing the humanity that we can all relate to. Recent awards include the Merit Award in All About Photo Magazine (July 2018) the Excellence Award in Black & White Magazine (June 2018) and Exhibitions at Gala awards in Barcelona and Faces at Budapest diary photography (2019).
