THE PORTRAIT | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | May 31ST, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | June 12TH, 2022

Exhibition Dates | July 16TH – 30TH, 2022

Theme:  The Portrait | Juror: Sandra Chen Weinstein

“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.   – Sandra”

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 the submission of photographs 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. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

City:

Eligibility:

Berlin-based photography gallery Fotogalerie Friedrichshain is pleased to invite artists to participate in its next collective photography exhibition on the theme « Portraits without borders »

APPLICATION DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 14, 2021

What makes a photograph a portrait? Today, portrait photography is everywhere and has become a more and more powerful tool in defining individual and collective identities. Portraiture has been constantly reinvented by photographers since the mid-19th century. It has expanded without limits, into a wide spectrum of practices. Defining what a photographic portrait is seems increasingly complex. Fotogalerie Friedrichshain invites photographers to gather in a group exhibition that will challenge the limits of current portrait photography.

Exhibition dates: December 9, 2021 – January 21, 2022

 

How to apply?

Submit up to 15 images (1600 pixels on the longest side each), your personal info (full name, location, email, phone number, website/instagram) and a brief artist statement on your contribution (up to 150 words), through Wetransfer to fotogalerie@kulturring.berlin

Selected photographers will be notified by November 19, 2021

 

Exhibition prints

To enter the exhibition, selected photographers can either:

– ship or personally deliver the exhibition prints to Fotogalerie Friedrichshain. If you’d like your prints back, please don’t forget to include return postage and packaging, otherwise they will be stored in the gallery archives or destroyed.

– or, have their images printed in Berlin by Fotogalerie Friedrichshain. Printing fees will be billed to artists.

Selected photographers will receive instructions on shipping their images or on submitting their high-res digital files for printing. Fotogalerie has a wide range of frames in different sizes if needed.

 

Use rights

Photographers retain full rights to their own images. Photographers whose submission is selected grant Fotogalerie Friedrichshain the nonexclusive right to use, print, and reproduce their images for the purpose of promoting the artists, the exhibition and its related programs, and subsequent display on Fotogalerie Friedrichshain’s website, social media and online exhibition channels.
