“The Constructed Image” Photo Competition
Theme: “The Constructed Image”
The concept of The Constructed Image encapsulates a deliberate orchestration of visual elements to convey narratives, emotions, and artistic visions. This theme explores the intricate interplay of subject, composition, props, lighting, and environment in crafting captivating photographs, at any scale. Through meticulous arrangement, photographers construct scenes with purposeful backgrounds, carefully chosen color palettes, and thought-provoking poses, blurring the line between reality and imagination. Praxis seeks the submission of photographic art that delves into the fusion of creativity and storytelling, showcasing the power of constructed elements to shape evocative, multidimensional compositions that resonate with viewers on a profound level. All capture types, genres, black & white and color, 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 (Exhibition Dates: Nov. 18–Dec. 9, 2023).
