CALL FOR ENTRIES | AN INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION

Theme: The Still Life | Juror: Kimberly Witham


Still life photography gives photographers great leeway and precise control in the arrangement of design elements within a composition. Still life work is a demanding genre, and one in which photographers are expected to form their work with a refined sense of lighting, coupled with composition and design skills. Unlike other genres the still life photographer makes pictures rather than takes them.

The Praxis Gallery is seeking the submission of photographic art that investigates the genre of the Still Life. Your submissions may explore classical to conceptual aspects of the still life, photographing object arrangements that intrigue, engage or entertain the viewer. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR | KIMBERLY WITHAM
Kimberly Witham is an artist and educator who resides in Glen Gardner, NJ. She earned a BA in Art History from Duke University and an MFA in photography from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. Her images are influenced by her studies in art history and her interest in the natural world. Since moving to New Jersey in 2006, her work has focused on the relationship between humans and wildlife. Her still life images include road kill animals, yard sale items, and flowers and fruit (often grown in the artist’s own garden). Her work has been featured in Color Magazine, PHOTO+, BLOW photo, The Photo Review, BLINK, Foto, Orion, The New Republic, and Wired (online) and has been used as cover illustration for books in the US and France. In 2016, National Geographic created a short film about Kimberly’s studio practice entitled “Making Roadkill Into Art.” She has won awards and grants including the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Award, a fellowship at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists, the Clarence John Laughlin Award and the Lindback Distinguished teaching award. Her work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in the United States and abroad and is held in numerous private collections. Kimberly is an Associate Professor of Photography at Bucks County Community College. Kimberly also teaches specialized workshops in still life photography and lighting.
