Light and Shadow
Creating unique effects with lights and shadows captured by a camera is, according to many, one of the most important means of photographic expression. Photographers have relied on the possibilities offered by the interplay between lights and shadows throughout the history of photography. In some cases lights and shadows are used to the effect of creating a formal compositional element; in others their role is to guide our gaze or focus our attention on specific parts of the image. The ways lights and shadows contribute to photographic meaning only depend on the imagination of the photographer.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Light and Shadow. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this time-honoured photographic subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; we welcome submissions from all photographic genres, including abstract compositions. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
One juror’s choice and up to three honourable mentions will be selected and announced. (Occasionally we also give out an associate’s choice award.) The juror’s choice receives three free entries for any upcoming themed group exhibition calls at PH21 Gallery. (Each free entry includes up to 15 images.) The webpage and the print catalogue of the exhibition will include a juror’s review; it provides a detailed review of the juror’s choice, shorter evaluations of the honourable mentions, and a one-sentence highlight of some of the other photographs included in the exhibition. (Please visit the pages of our international exhibitions for examples.)
