The Decisive Moment
An International Juried Exhibition
Twentieth century French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson described the decisive moment as ‘the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give that event its proper expression.”
While the concept of the decisive moment is often associated with dynamic, synchronic activity captured in an instant - it may just as well apply to the photographic image that records a thoughtful moment of fleeting solitude or calm. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore this intersection of form, function and significance. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
Thirty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror’s Choice and Two Honorable mentions will be selected by the juror and featured in the gallery exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Juror’s Choice winner will be featured in (and receive a complimentary copy of) Praxis Gallery’s Annual Review magazine.
Amateur and professional photographers worldwide. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
