The Photograph is an extended, loaded evidence — as if it caricatured not the figure of what it represents but its very existence … The Photograph then becomes a bizarre medium, a new form of hallucination: false on the level of perception, true on the level of time: a temporal hallucination, so to speak, a modest shared hallucination (on the one hand ‘it is not there,’ on the other ‘but it has indeed been’): a mad image, chafed by reality.” Roland Barthes
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art of any genre and any subject matter that represents the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance – be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict – of fiction or fact – or any other literal or ephemeral lens based investigation.
All subject matters, genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
The submission fee for entry is $35.00 for the first 5 images, $5.00 for each additional image.
