Close on April 28, 2019
Sensuous Geographies: The Nude
Territory: Worldwide
Theme(s): Nude
Eligibility: All entrants must be 18 years of age or older
Entry: $35.00
Prize: Exhibition
THEME: THE NUDE
The nude form has been portrayed in art throughout history, from the classical era to the enlightenment and the modern era. The nude figure in western art - specifically in photography - has expressed ideals of female and male beauty along with other human qualities including life, energy, and an array of complicated human emotions. Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographic works that explore the nude in any of its varied styles including: figure studies, environmental nudes, implied nudes and erotica - just to name a few of the many iterations of this genre. All capture types, genres, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.

JUROR: DOUGLAS BEASLEY
Douglas Beasley's personal vision explores the spiritual aspects of people and place and is concerned with how the sacred is recognized and expressed in everyday life. He has a BFA from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and has had several books of his photography published worldwide. As founder and director of Vision Quest Photo Workshops, Doug provides workshops around the world that emphasize personal expression and creative vision over the mechanics of camera use. He believes in helping each student find their own voice rather than making anonymous ‘pretty pictures'. Doug has recently become the owner and publisher of Shots Magazine, a printed quarterly of eclectic fine-art photography.

Doug continues to explore the notion of what is sacred in his photography and in his own life. He lives in a passive solar home surrounded by trees in Saint Paul, MN and when not out traveling the world he can be found tending his Japanese gardens, at his cabin, the woods or enjoying a strong cup of coffee while listening to loud music. Personal heroes include Jimi Hendrix, the Dalai Lama and whoever invented the espresso machine.

ACCEPTANCE: AWARDS
Thirty images will be selected by the juror for exhibition at Praxis Gallery. A Juror's Choice and two Honorable Mentions will be awarded by the juror and featured in the exhibition, the printed show catalog and the online show gallery. Award winners will receive a free show catalog. The Directors Choice Award will be given to the artist with the strongest series of images submitted and will have their work featured at praxisgallery.com.
