Landscape photography shows spaces within the world that are sometimes vast and unending, other times microscopic. Landscape photographers typically capture the presence of nature but can also focus on man-made features or disturbances of natural vistas. Many landscape photographs show an unsullied depiction of nature, devoid of human influence—instead featuring subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather, ambient light and other sublime elements. Beyond purely aesthetic considerations, landscapes often contain intensely personal and emotional subjectivities, hinting at secret histories of fondness, love, and nurturing, or past emotional turbulence, loss, and regret.
Praxis Gallery seeks photographic artwork that explores a broad, interpretive, and personal investigation of the landscape: both as a place or an idea, as a literal expression or conceptual iteration. All genres, capture types, black & white and color, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission. Juried by G.S. Broz.
Up to seventy-four images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice, eight Honorable Mentions, and a Directors’ Choice will be awarded and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog, and the online exhibit
