CALL FOR ENTRIES | THE PORTRAIT

THEME | THE PORTRAIT | INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

 

Entry Deadline | October 6th, 2018

Notice of Acceptance | October 17th, 2018

Exhibition Dates | November 2nd – November 23rd, 2018

 

THE PORTRAIT | JUROR: DOUGLAS BEASLEY

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.” 

 

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

 

JUROR | DOUGLAS BEASLEY

Douglas Beasley’s personal vision explores the spiritual aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. He has a BFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and has had several books of his photography published worldwide.

 

As founder and director of Vision Quest Photo Workshops, Doug provides workshops around the world that emphasize personal expression and creative vision over the mechanics of camera use. He believes in helping each student find their own voice rather than making anonymous ‘pretty pictures’. Doug has recently become the owner and publisher of Shots Magazine, a printed quarterly of eclectic fine-art photography.

 

ACCEPTANCE | AWARDS

Thirty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice and two Honorable Mentions will be awarded by the juror and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online show gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Directors Choice Award will be given to the artist with the strongest series of images submitted and will have their work featured at praxisgallery.com.

 

ENTRY FEE | $35.00
