LANDSCAPES – an International Juried Photography Exhibition
Praxis Gallery open call for exceptional landscape photography
- Deadline: 30 November 2023
- Entry fee: $40 for up to five images, $5 for each additional
- Website: https://www.praxisphotocenter.org/2-submission-page-trfr
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
JUROR G.S. BROZ
G. S. Broz relocated to the US in 2018, after ten years in Asia. While based in Shanghai as a broadcast video director, he fell in love with film photography. His work examines themes of consciousness, spirituality, and ethics, and maintains a sturdy and cinematic quality informed by his pedigree as a filmmaker (B.A., Film Studies, University of Pittsburgh, 1999). Upon returning to the states, he began showing his work in juried shows and has since displayed physical work at galleries in Providence, RI, Sacramento, CA; Portland, OR; and Valencia, Spain. Pushing the boundaries of technology, he built a pioneering private gallery for his work in the metaverse on the Cryptovoxels platform in 2021. He currently leads the team at Edifice Metaversal (a mixed-use digital space in Decentraland) and continues to work as a freelance broadcast director based in Pittsburgh. His work has become a regular part of the group programming at Praxis Photo Arts Center. A solo exhibit of his most recent work, Yankee Enduro, is on display in The Lab Gallery at Praxis through Nov. 11.
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 exhibit book, and the online exhibit gallery. Juror’s Choice will receive free entry into three juried calls for entry of their choice and a complimentary exhibit book. Directors’ Choice will receive free entry into two juried calls for entry of their choice.
