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
