INTERNATIONAL JURIED PHOTO EXHIBITION | THEME | THE DECISIVE MOMENT

Notice of Acceptance | October 10th, 2017
Exhibition Dates | November 3rd – November 30th, 2017
THEME | THE DECISIVE MOMENT
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.
JUROR | DAVID L. PARKER
Dr. David Parker is an international award winning photographer who brings his unique background as an occupational epidemiologist to the subject of his compelling photographic work. Focusing on child labor, Dr. Parker trains his articulate and engaging photographic style on the tragedy of children lost to economic degradation, exploitation and war. His work on the subject of child labor has taken him around the world: from the garbage dumps of Mexico City, to the tanneries of Marrakech, and most recently, to the diamond mines of Sierra Leone. Dr. Parker has won numerous awards and grants for his photography and has published two books of his photographic works: Stolen Dreams, 1997, and Before Their Time, 2007.
