A juried international photography exhibition
November 25 – December 15, 2014
The human body has been the central subject of various photographic genres. From documentary, event and street photography to fashion photography and the nude, photographers have always found ways of constructing images in which the specific portrayal of the human body gains significance. That significance may stem from the rich layers of meanings emerging from specific socio-cultural contexts, the visual interaction of the human body with the surrounding physical space, or the intriguing compositional possibilities offered by the body itself. Some explore movements, study expressive gestures and postures, some concentrate on the anatomical beauty, some narrate whole lives through the depiction of the human body. Others may offer stern visual criticism of our normative conceptions of the human body and the ways it is portrayed in mainstream Western media.
PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Body. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this most intriguing subject, and who would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed; the human body may be portrayed in various genres. Indeed, we are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
