The photograph’s power as a narrative tool is derived from the impression that what is captured within the frame is an accurate representation of what actually occurred at a specific moment in time. As complete or comprehensive as any narrative may appear to be, it will always be subject to a process of including some elements and excluding others. These inclusions and exclusions are a crucial part of what photographic storytelling is all about – What is being presented within the frame to the viewer – and what is being left out or left to the viewer’s imagination.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the development of visual narratives through the still image. Stories may take any shape or form; they may be literal or fantasy, documentary or fiction; complex or minimal. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
Juror: Sandrine Hermand-Grisel
Sandrine Hermand-Grisel is a fine art photographer and printmaker. She grew up in Paris and London before she moved to the United States with her family in 2006. Her work has been published in books and magazines as well as exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide.
Using her broad knowledge of the photographic world, she launched the website All About Photo — a source of information for photographers and aficionados of photography, as well as a showcase platform for talented artists. An integral part of All About Photo is its annual awards competition, The Mind’s Eye, which she has juried over the years with dozens of renowned photographers and curators. She has also juried many competitions and group shows. While still working on personal projects, she now spends most of her time discovering new talents for All About Photo.
Fifty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice, three Honorable Mentions, and a Directors Choice will be awarded and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog, and the online exhibit gallery.
