THE PORTRAIT | CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

 

THE PORTRAIT

In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland writes of three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.”

The Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photograph works that celebrate the conceptual and aesthetic considerations involved in creating portraits: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

 

JUROR | ROBI CHAKRABORTY

Originally from India, Robi Chakraborty studied photography under the prestigious O.P. Sharma at Triveni Kala Sangam Photography in New Delhi. In the early 1980s Robi began his career doing both press and commercial photography, but through time, wanderlust, and an exploring spirit, Robi became drawn to capturing the people in the villages and cities of his native India. Taking roads less traveled, Robi sought out cultures and ways of life that were quickly becoming lost in the contemporary, more homogenized world of today. 

Having lived in India, Nepal, Africa and the US, Robi portrays his global view of the world through his photography by celebrating both the diversity of his subjects yet beautifully revealing the striking similarities and capturing the humanity that we can all relate to. Recent awards include the Merit Award in All About Photo Magazine (July 2018) the Excellence Award in Black & White Magazine (June 2018) and Exhibitions at Gala awards in Barcelona and Faces at Budapest diary photography (2019).
