Color is a powerful tool in composing a poetic visual statement, and is highly descriptive in developing the imaginative capabilities of the mind’s eye. Certain colors carry a symbolic weight to them that when used in visual arts evokes certain moods, thoughts, ideas, and concepts, merely by their presence. Color creates different emotions and feelings. These reactions are rooted in psychological effects, biological conditioning, and cultural imprinting.
Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic art that explores these implications of color as a central device in the creation of compelling photographic art. All genres, capture types, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.
