THEME | THE PORTRAIT
In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the “posing.”

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait – revealing personal narratives or creating new anthologies through the creative representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
