THE SHAPE OF THINGS | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION
Entry Deadline | Aug 31st, 2020
Notice of Acceptance | Sept 12th, 2020
Exhibition Dates | Oct 24th – Nov 16th, 2020
THEME | THE SHAPE OF THINGS
The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation… an organic coordination of visual elements. – Henri Cartier-Bresson
The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements to form a whole – often adhering to compositional principles that make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of rhythm, movement, contrast, balance, unity, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of works of art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
