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

Theme: The Shape of Things | Juror: Ross Anderson

"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 refers to ‘putting together’ or the act of combining elements or parts to form a whole - often adhering to compositional principles that render a photographic image more appealing or intriguing to viewers. These principles include the development of contrast, balance, rhythm, movement, unity, proximity, and continuity to create expressive and compelling compositions – while emphasizing different visual concepts.

The Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works of art that are exploring composition as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic – be it pure visual formalism or in support of thematic objectives. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.​​​
