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

THE SHAPE OF THINGS
“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 essentially means ‘putting together’ or the act of combining different parts or elements to form a whole - often while adhering to compositional principles that make a photographic image more appealing or intriguing to viewers. Principles of composition include the development of rhythm, contrast, unity, movement, balance, proximity and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual, political or social concepts.                                               
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of fine art photographic images that explore composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic whether it be pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All capture types, genres, black & white and color, non-traditional and traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
