International Deadline: May 28, 2018 – PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed ‘Monochrome’.
Monochrome photography is usually associated with black and white
images. However, in the history of photography other hues, such as sepia
and cyan were also used, and today there are countless examples of
monochromatic images whose photographic qualities are based on the tonal
range of various other colours. While monochromacity used to be a
technological limitation for a long time, today it is more of an
artistic choice. Photographers may opt for working with the shades of
just one colour for compositional reasons or for reasons related to the
expressive content of their images, and therefore their decision is to
be interpreted. Our appreciation of contemporary monochromatic images is
also rooted in the knowledge that the lack of colour range is
significant and meaningful, not merely a technological limitation.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group
exhibition themed Monochrome. We are looking for submissions from all
photographers who create black and white or other monochromatic images
and would like to share their work with a wider international audience
through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. We welcome submissions from all
photographic genres, including abstract compositions. We are interested
in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
Works will be on display July 12 – August 4, 2018.
All photographers 18 years or older worldwide may enter the competition
by submitting their own, original work. PH21 Gallery welcomes
submissions from, and exhibits work of emerging and established
photographers as well.
