Black and white: the living tradition

A juried international photography exhibition

February 19 – March 11, 2015


At the dawn of photography, black and white was the only available way of capturing photographic images. The technological constraint had a profound impact on the early development of the medium as photographers had to adapt to the specific means of black and white photographic depiction. Today, however, black and white is a creative choice, and understanding that choice is part of the appreciation process. As the emergence and development of colour photography have not made black and white obsolete, we may ask ourselves why recent generations of photographers keep turning to the shades of grey, why they find renewing and reinterpreting the rich tradition of black and white photography appealing for their twenty first century creative pursuits.


PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Black and white: the living tradition. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who work in black and white and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, as black and white photography is independent of generic or stylistic constraints; we are interested in all black and white photographic work.


Submission deadline: January 27, 2015 midnight (UTC+01, Central European Time)
