OPEN CALL | POETIC STORYTELLING | PRAXIS DIRECTORS GALLERY Entry Deadline | April 15TH, 2023 Notice of Acceptance | April 23rd, 2023 Exhibition Dates | May 20TH – June 3RD, 2023 Theme: Poetic Storytelling | Curated By: Praxis Directors The power of photography as a tool for storytelling lies in its ability to convey the impression that the image captured within the frame is an accurate representation of a specific moment in time. However, every narrative is inherently limited by the selective inclusion and exclusion of certain elements. This is a crucial aspect of photographic storytelling; it is not only about what is presented within the frame but also what is left out of the frame - and left to the viewer's imagination - granting interpretive liberty (or poetic license) to both the creator and the viewer. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explore the development of visual narratives through a poetic lens. The stories may take any form ranging from literal depictions to fantasy or fiction, they may be complex or minimalist in approach. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

 Up to 36 Images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. One Curator’s Choice and three Honorable Mentions will be awarded and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog, and the online exhibit gallery. Curator’s Choice wi
