Theme: The Beauty in Madness | Juror: Sarah Weiss

Madness (mental illness) is something that both frightens and fascinates us all. It is a word that we are universally familiar with yet it haunts the human imagination.  Through centuries, in prose, drama, poetry, and the visual arts, “madness" has been on display for all to see.

Mental illness with devastating effect, can disturb our assumptions; create unbearable disruptions in the routine of daily living; and turn our expectations  and experiences upside down. And yet, it is this upside-down world view that so often opens a universe of unique and inventive perspectives oblivious to those from free from disruptions of the mind. (think Vincent van Gogh, Edvard Munch, Frida Kahlo, Virginia Woolf and Edgar Allan Poe)

Praxis Gallery seeks work that explores ideas linked to mental health, be it conflict or humor, fiction or fact, or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. We welcome photographic art that questions conventional assumptions about mental health or celebrates the unique perspective only visible to those who can see the "beauty in madness”. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
