In her book, Portraits and Persons, writer Cynthia Freeland describes three essential elements that constitute a portrait: “(1) a recognizable physical body (2) an inner life, i.e., some sort of psychological or mental states and (3) self-presentation, or the "posing.” 


Praxis Gallery seeks the submission of photographs that celebrate the aesthetic and conceptual considerations involved in the creation of the portrait: revealing personal narratives or new anthologies through the artistic representation of the subject. All genres, capture types, color and black & white, traditional and non-traditional photographic and digital post-production processes are welcome for submission.



Ross Anderson is an award-winning fine art photographer and filmmaker.  His honors include the 2009 American Photographic Artists Grand Prize Award and the 2011 International Loupe Award.

Ross earned his MFA at the University of Falmouth in the UK. He currently lives and works in Minneapolis and is the director of Praxis Gallery.
