The Shadow Aspect
By Praxis Gallery


 
International Deadline: December 19, 2017 – “Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories” – Ellie Wiesel.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow – exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations.

Exhibition Dates: Jan 19th – Feb 17th, 2018

ELIGIBILITY
Open to artists 18 years of age or older worldwide. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

AWARDS
A Juror’s Choice and Two Honorable mentions will be selected by the juror and featured in the gallery exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Juror’s Choice winner will be featured in (and receive a complimentary copy of) Praxis Gallery’s Annual Review magazine.
