Competitions Praxis Gallery CFE: The Shadow Aspect
International Deadline: May 31, 2020 – Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern and texture. They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow – exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses and memories.’ – Ellie Wiesel.
Exhibition Dates: July 19th – Aug 13th, 2020.
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.
