The Shape of Things
By Praxis Gallery


 
International Deadline: August 31, 2019 – 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.

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.

Exhibition Dates: Oct 25th – Nov 19th, 2019.

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