Opportunity for Photographers.

INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION | THEME | THE DECISIVE MOMENT

The twentieth-century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described the decisive moment as ‘the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”

The concept of the decisive moment is often associated with the synchronic and dynamic activity that is captured in an instant, but it can also apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm. Praxis Gallery is looking for the submission of photographic works that explore this intersection of form, function and significance.

All genres, capture types, black and white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

 

JUROR | DAVID L. PARKER 

Dr. David Parker, an international award winning photographer, brings his unique background as an occupational epidemiologist to the subject of his compelling photographic work. Focusing his lens on child labor, Dr. Parker trains his engaging photographic style on the tragedy of children who are lost to economic degradation, exploitation and war. His work on the subject of child labor has taken him to many parts of the world: from the garbage dumps of Mexico City, to the tanneries of Marrakech, the streets of Bangkok and most recently, to the diamond mines of Sierra Leone. Dr. Parker has won multiple grants and awards for his photography and has published two books of his photographic works: Stolen Dreams, 1997, and Before Their Time, 2007.
