SENSUOUS GEOGRAPHIES : THE NUDE
THEME | THE NUDE
The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art – specifically in photography – has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica – just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
