“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Spanning two centuries, night photography has captured the collective imagination of the masses. From the infamously long exposures required by early artists to high-speed color films and the advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Natural vistas, celestial bodies, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures, and nocturnal interludes represent but a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography – from dusk to dawn – a compelling contemporary art form All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

GALLERY 2: IN-BETWEEN MOMENTS • Guest Curated by Sarah Weiss

Entry Deadline | Aug 15th, 2021
Notice of Acceptance | Aug 23rd, 2021
Exhibition Dates | Sept 18th – Oct 2nd, 2021

French novelist Georges Perec declared that we should found “an anthropology of the ordinary” as revolt against cultural and mass media exploitation of the exotic – the relentless parade of trauma elevated above the routine of everyday events. Perec’s revolt against the frenzy of trauma (the shameful, the voyeuristic and the spectacular) was to excessively document the ordinary in daily life, meticulously accounting for everything and anything in one’s immediate surroundings in an active attempt to uncover the unimportant and the insignificant.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the in-between moments of life and endeavours to notice the unnoticeable, the mundane, the banal and anti-climactic. “In giving value to the ordinary we, in turn, begin to value the space of our own identity and everyday ‘normal’ experience that lies outside of commodified and predefined trajectories of trauma exploitation. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
