Theme: Food ~ The Aftermath | Curated By: Praxis Directors
Food photography is a still life genre used to create attractive, idealized representations of food to enhance its marketing appeal to the consumers. Praxis is not interested in idealized food; we are interested in photography that documents the leftovers, the remains, the aftermath of food during or after its consumption. Examples of the aftermath of food include: Meal remnants, food covered plates, utensils and cups. Rotting and molding food. Food waste. Pest infested food. Dries bits, moldy bits. Food dried to surfaces. Burnt food. Food covered faces and clothing. Food dropped to surfaces. Food in environmental settings. People eating food. Food chewing, mashing, gnashing, and any unvarnished representations of packaged, processed, and frozen food types.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore any possible concept of the aftermath of food. 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.
