Theme: After Dark  | Juror: Lance Keimig 

“Night does not show things, it suggests them. It disturbs and surprises us with its strangeness. It liberates forces within us which are dominated by our reason during the daytime.” ― Brassai

Night photography, spanning two centuries, has managed to capture the collective imagination of the masses. From both the infamously long exposures that were required by early artists, to the high speed color films and later to the advent of digital technology, the subject of the night has inspired an intense level of interest among contemporary artists. Photographers have focused their lens on urban landscapes, natural vistas, artificial structures, celestial bodies, factories, and nocturnal interludes -all represent but a few of the limitless subjects of the night.

The Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the fundamental qualities that make night photography - from dusk to dawn - a compelling contemporary art form. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.



Lance Keimig has worked capturing night-time photography for almost 30 years. He has taught night photography and light painting since 1998 at a number of venues including the New England School of Photography, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Houston Center for Photography, Rayko Photo Center in San Francisco, and the School of Visual Art in New York. Keimig has published numerous books, teaches workshops around the country, and leads night photography tours to places like Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, and Cuba. Keimig lectures at the Photo Plus Expo in New York, and was a featured speaker and workshop instructor at Estudio Brasil in Saõ Paulo, Brazil.
