Solo exhibition opportunity

July 29 – August 18, 2021  

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a solo exhibition opportunity. Please submit a coherent portfolio that is suitable for a solo exhibition, an artist statement and a short bio. The portfolio should consist of at least 15 and at most 35 images. The submission may include one or two series, provided that the two series are suitable for a joint presentation in a single exhibition. There are no generic, stylistic or thematic constraints; photographers working in all photographic areas, genres and styles are welcome to submit their work.

  • The winner of this competition will be awarded a solo exhibition from July 29 – August 18, 2021.

  • PH21 Gallery will cover all printing and installation costs for the solo exhibition. In addition to the brick-and-mortar solo exhibition, the work of the winner will also be presented on a dedicated page of our website. The web page will include the artist statement and the bio of the photographer, together with the critical reviews by the curators.

  • Up to 10 other photographers will be offered the opportunity to present a mini-series of three photographs from their portfolio in the "Photographic Visions" group exhibition. Photographic Visions is a biannual exhibition at PH21 Gallery, showing mini-series of works of selected artists who submitted their portfolio for our solo exhibition competition. The Photographic Visions exhibition is also presented on a dedicated page on our website.

  • We will publish a catalogue for the solo exhibition and for the Photographic Visions exhibition as well. The catalogues (and the dedicated pages of the exhibitions on our website) will contain critical reviews by the curators of the exhibition. The exhibition catalogues will be available through Blurb Books.

Motion

A curated international photography exhibition

August 26 – September 18, 2021

Photography is a medium of still images; it cannot create the illusion of motion the way in which moving images such as film, video or cartoons can. The static nature of the image itself, however, has never prevented photographers from putting motion in the centre of their endeavours. Instead of freezing the moment they often strive for capturing movement and the passing of time in a variety of ways. The fragile moment might be broken by showing the sweeping power of motion. Capturing motion is never a mere given in photography because it is not a default option of the medium. Depicting or expressing motion is a welcome challenge for photographers; it is also the source of some of the most creative images in diverse photographic genres.  

 

PH21 Gallery invites photographers to submit their work for a group exhibition themed Motion. We are looking for submissions from all photographers who are interested in this most intriguing topic and would like to share their work with a wider international audience through the exposure of PH21 Gallery. The theme is broadly construed, and it is independent of generic or stylistic constraints. We are interested in all possible creative photographic interpretations of the theme.
