Opportunity Description

International Deadline: November 25, 2019 – PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Forward the Tradition. We are looking for photographs whose genre category is apparent by looking at the image, because of the creative use of the visual traditions of the genre. Experimental works that renew and challenge our understanding of photographic genres are also welcome.

The history of photography is the history of the continuous invention and renewal of the expressive repertoire of creative photographic communication. A number of genres rely on staging and directing, while straight photography and street photography seeks to create photographic meaning without prearranging the world in front of the camera. Some genres, such as portraiture and still life may incorporate both major approaches. We often identify the genre of the image just by looking at it, because we recognise the identifying features of the genre. For this exhibition we ask photographers to reflect on genres with photographic means.

On display: December 19, 2019 – January 11, 2020.

All photographers 18 years or older worldwide may enter the competition by submitting their own, original work. PH21 Gallery welcomes submissions from, and exhibits work of emerging and established photographers as well.
