Juried Group Exhibition | Theme | The Shadow Aspect

Add to Favorites Report Listing



‘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. 

Praxis Gallery is looking for photographic art that explores the conceptual, formal, and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Entries can focus on the shadow as pure visual form that is expressed through the creation of shape, pattern, line, and texture. Submissions can also examine the psychological and cultural implications of the shadow - exploring ideas of internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, foreboding or other ephemeral interpretations. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
