THE PORTRAIT | A JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Add to Favorites Report Listing

THEME | THE PORTRAIT | INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

For this exhibit, Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of images that celebrate both the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in creating a portrait - how the photographer reveals personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.


THE PORTRAIT

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.”


JUROR | DOUGLAS BEASLEY

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

As founder and director of Vision Quest Photo Workshops, Doug conducts workshops around the world that emphasize personal expression and creative vision over the mechanics of camera use. He believes in helping each student of photography 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.
