Still Life

Beauty in Decay

Organisation:

Eligibility:

Beauty is subjective in the eye of the viewer. Societal conventions pressure us to conform in like-mindedness to visual pinnacles, yet the most ethereal craft often originates from divergent work that transgresses tradition. How does your work depict "beauty" in our deconstruction of the captured image? Potential subject matter includes but is not limited to abandoned places, found objects, still life, and the examination of decomposition and demise. Beauty in Decay is an international juried group exhibition open to photographers ages 18 years and older. All black and white, color, conventional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

Accepted media: Photography, Video, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. September 2022

The aesthetic perception of the matter man relates to in his environment conditions his existence on a daily basis determining his own behavior, choices, ideas and vision of the world.

This call asks for an analytical reading, a visual-conceptual extraction of the things of the world, a minimal reduction aimed at extracting those essential signs, shapes, traces and contrasts that create those structures - often invisible - from which we gather information about their own existence, exposing their nature, their function, and which enrich our knowledge of the world.

THE STILL LIFE | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Entry Deadline | January 31st, 2022

Notice of Acceptance | February 12th, 2022

Exhibition Dates | Mar 19th - April 2nd, 2022

Theme: The Still Life | Juror: Kimberly Witham
 

Still life photography, more so than other types of photography, such as landscape or portraiture, gives the photographer extensive leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life photography is a demanding genre, one in which the photographers are expected to be able to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. The still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission

JUROR | KIMBERLY WITHAM

Kimberly Witham is an artist and educator who currently resides in Glen Gardner, NJ. She earned a BA in Art History from Duke University and an MFA in photography from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. Her photographs are strongly influenced by her studies in art history and her interest in the natural world. Since moving to New Jersey in 2006, her work has focused on the relationship between humans and wildlife. Her still life images include road kill animals, yard sale items, and flowers and fruit (often grown in the artist’s own garden). Her work has been featured in Color Magazine, PHOTO+, BLOW photo, The Photo Review, BLINK, Foto, Orion, The New Republic, and Wired (online) and has been used as cover illustration for books in the US and France. In 2016, National Geographic created a short film about Kimberly’s studio practice entitled “Making Roadkill Into Art.” She has won awards and grants including the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Award, a fellowship at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, the Clarence John Laughlin Award and the Lindback Distinguished teaching award. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad and is held in numerous private collections. Kimberly is an Associate Professor of Photography at Bucks County Community College. Kimberly also teaches specialized workshops in still life photography and lighting.
