Compete Praxis Gallery: Landscapes
International Deadline: October 31, 2021 – Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape – both as a place, or an idea – as a literal expression or conceptual iteration. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
Landscape photography shows spaces within the world, sometimes vast and unending, but other times microscopic. Landscape photographs typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of landscapes. Many landscape photographs show little or no human activity and are created in the pursuit of a pure, unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities; evidence of secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing – or of past emotional turbulence, loss, longing and regret.
On display Dec 18th, 2021 – Jan 3rd, 2022.
Open to artists 18 years of age or older worldwide. All genres, capture types, black & white and monochromatic, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
Wendi Schneider is a Denver-based visual artist illuminating impressions of grace and serenity in the natural world with photography and precious metals.

Her work has been honored and exhibited internationally including AIPAD and Art Basel, and is held in permanent collections at New Orleans Museum of Art, Memphis Brooks Museum, Center For Creative Photography, and Auburn University Library… see more
