THE SHAPE OF THINGS | CALL FOR ENTRIES | INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

"The rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation… an organic coordination of visual elements." – Henri Cartier-Bresson

The term composition means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining parts or elements in order to form a whole. Adhering to compositional principles can make a work of photographic art more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of contrast, balance, unity, rhythm, movement, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

The Praxis Gallery is currently accepting submissions of photographic art that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic whether it be pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR | ROSS ANDERSON is an award-winning fine art photographer.  His honors include the 2009 American Photographic Artists Grand Prize Award and the 2011 International Loupe Award. His work was recently selected for Creative Quarterly’s 100 Best of 2017 annual publication. His photographs have been exhibited in the US, Europe and Asia. Ross earned his MFA at the University of Falmouth in the UK. He lives and works in Minneapolis and is the director of Praxis Gallery.
