CALL FOR ENTRIES | AFTER DARK | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

 THEME | AFTER DARK

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

​For two centuries, night photography has captured the imagination of the masses. From exceptionally long exposures required by early artists, to high speed color films and the subsequent advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an explosion of interest among contemporary artists. Celestial bodies, natural vistas, urban landscapes, factories, artificial structures and nocturnal interludes represent only a few of the limitless subjects of nighttime photography.

Praxis Gallery is looking for the submission of photographic images that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography (from dusk to dawn) a compelling contemporary art form. All subjects (places, people and things), genres, capture types, color, black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
