This exhibition is a celebration of the astonishing beauty and diversity found in the animal world.

Compassionate images of companion animals, wild animals, farm animals, insects, and fish are all heartily welcomed.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that show us the very best of your furry, scaly, feathery photographs! Images that showcase violence or inhumane treatment will not be considered. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional processes, and digital post-production are all welcome for submission.

GUEST CURATOR: ANNE BERRY

Anne Berry is internationally recognized for her ability to create lyrical, intimate portraits of animals. Since 2010 she has traveled to small zoos in Europe to visit and photograph primates.  Her portraits reveal the unique personality of each of these animals. Jane Goodall describes the photographs as “wonderful, very moving, should melt a few hearts.” This project culminated in a folio published by 21st Editions, which is held in museum and library special collections, including The National Gallery of Art. Berry published Behind Glass, 2021 to make the project accessible to a wider audience. It is Berry”s goal to motivate people to feel compassion for primates and an obligation to protect them. Most of the primates she photographs qualify as endangered, and all of them are facing stress from loss of habitat and human activity. The plight of primates on earth is urgent; our indifference will condemn them to extinction, and we will follow. These photographs provide a voice for primates, and they are asking for help.
