The Shadow Aspect: Juried Photo Exhibition

Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center

‘Most people think that shadows follow, precede, surround beings or objects. The truth is that they also surround words, ideas, desires, deeds, impulses, and memories.’ – Elie Wiesel.

Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores the formal, conceptual, and metaphoric implications of the shadow. Submissions may focus on the shadow as pure visual form expressed through the creation of line, shape, pattern, and texture.

They may also examine the cultural and psychological implications of the shadow – exploring ideas of foreboding, internal conflict, passages into the unconsciousness, or other ephemeral interpretations. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional, and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR | ELIZABETH FLINSCH

Elizabeth Flinsch is a photography educator, curator, and the editor of SHOTS Magazine. She earned her MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art with a focus on Studio Art and Photography. SHOTS Magazine, based in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is an independent print journal of black and white photography founded in 1986. Elizabeth curates submissions, interviews featured artists, and designs the magazine from cover to cover. Her own artistic roots in traditional printmaking manifest in her affinity for alternative photographic processes. Elizabeth is deeply committed to her vision for the photography landscape as a more equitable realm for women identified, queer, and BIPOC artists. https://www.elizabethflinsch.com
