INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION | THEME | MAKING STRANGE

THEME | MAKING STRANGE

How do we document what happens and recurs everyday: the common, the banal, the ordinary? Can we revive astonishment from the forgotten obvious by discovering unexplored perspectives that depict our common spaces and familiar activities in engrossing  and startling new ways? Praxis Gallery is looking for the submission of photographic images that search for the ironic and iconic in the everyday world around us; that portray the places, people, and things which have become ordinary to us in new, imaginative and expressive ways. All capture types, genres interpretations, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.


JUROR | CHUCK AVERY

Chuck Avery is the juror for this call. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and graduated with honors in 1977 with an emphasis on the documentary mode of photography. Since 2003 his work has concentrated on suburban expansion and sprawl, and the language and messaging found in historical sites and museums.  His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, from New York to San Francisco to Ping Yao, China. He was the recipient of a McKnight Fellowship in Photography in 2010 and produced a book titled Museum at the end of his fellowship. His work is included in the collections of the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Kansas and was featured in the Midwest Photographer's Project at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, Illinois.
