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.
