Colour burst

logo_en_230 Colour burst

A juried international photography exhibition

January 29 – February 18, 2015

There are two kinds of photographs with respect to the significance of their colours. On the one hand, ever since colour film technology became widely available, colour has become the default in most photographic practices. In other words, some photographs are in colour not because their colours bear some special significance (compared, for instance, to their possible black and white counterparts), but simply because the available film or digital technology has long turned colour to be the common method of capturing photographic images. We may think of these photographs as colour by default. On the other hand, colours are often central to the meaning of photographs for their emphatic, symbolic, psychological, social, compositional, etc. significance. These photographs would not work in black and white at all; that they are in colour is not merely a technological given, rather, it is an integral, formative and significant aspect of their photographic meaning. We may think of these photographs as colour by significance.

 

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Colour burst. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in the significance of colours in photography and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed as the significance of colours is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.

 

Submission deadline: January 11, 2015 midnight (UTC+01, Central European Time)
