The Abstract Image
By Praxis Gallery
International Deadline: June 30, 2019 – Praxis
Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the
world through an abstracted lens; utilizing elements of color, light,
shadow, texture, shape and line to express meaning outside of
traditional representational and documentary styles of photography.
Thirty images will be selected by the juror Elizabeth Flinsch, editor of
SHOTS Magazine, for exhibition July 26 thru August 19, 2019 at Praxis
“An abstract photograph draws away from that which is realistic or
literal. It draws away from natural appearances and recognizable
subjects in the actual world. Some people even say it departs from true
meaning, existence, and reality itself. It stands apart from the
concrete whole with its purpose instead depending on conceptual meaning
and intrinsic form” – John Suler.
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
