The Sublime Landscape
By Praxis Gallery

International Deadline: July 31, 2019 – Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic artwork that explores the many iterations of this exhibition theme. We encourage a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the sublime landscape. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

The sublime landscape is defined as having the quality of such greatness, magnitude or intensity, whether physical, metaphysical, moral, aesthetic or spiritual, that our ability to perceive or comprehend it is temporarily overwhelmed. According to aesthetic philosophy, sublime landscapes can include any of five visual components: 1) great ideas, 2) passion, 3) the appropriate use of figures, 4) the right aesthetic diction, and 5) a skillful composition.

Exhibition Dates: Sept 27th – Oct 21st, 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.
