A curated international photography exhibition
May 9 – June 1, 2019
Objects in our visual environment come in many forms and photographers are often intrigued by the shape of things. In some photographic genres the images of things have a simple, depictive function; they are merely part of a complex image that may consist of several recognizable objects but their shape is not significant in the overall composition of the image. At the other end of the spectrum, abstract photography concentrates on shapes and forms for their own sake up to a point when we can no longer recognise the objects themselves. Between being either insignificant or the only significant element, the shape of recognisable things may also be the driving compositional component of an image. That is, the shape of things may be of central importance to the composition of photographs not only in abstract photography but also in other genres. These images capture our attention and stand out for their creative form.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed The Shape of Things. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this subject and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; we are looking for photographs in which the shape of things is a significant compositional element, including abstract photography. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
Submission deadline: April 15, 2019
