The old saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” suggests that a photograph transcends language. Words, however, have been a key part of many important photographers’ work from the signs and billboards in many Walker Evans’ photos to Lee Friedlander’s 2019 book, Signs, for example. The interplay of image and language can create a vivid sense of irony, tension, or poignance. The size and shapes of a font are visual aspects that can carry as much weight as any other aspect in the frame.

The Praxis Gallery seeks submissions of photographic art that includes written language as a fundamental aspect of the composition. Text may be in the form of handwriting scrawled over the photo, signs or fragments of signs, graffiti, palimpsests, just to name a few iterations of the theme. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.


Dallas Crow, a high school English teacher for over twenty years,  co-teaches a course at Breck School with an art instructor where students combine language and images. Crow's own poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have been published in numerous anthologies, periodicals, and in the sidewalks of St. Paul. His chapbook, Small, Imperfect Paradise, was published by Parallel Press at the University of Minnesota. His photographs have been shown in galleries around the United States and internationally and on the covers of multiple books and magazines. His solo exhibition, The Other Border, was mounted at Praxis in the fall of 2018.
