Abstract

Disassociating an object’s finer details from our understanding and assumptions about the whole is the heart of abstract photography. Each of us, every day, see grass or flowers or machinery. We see our eggs on the way to the pan and the coffee cup we’re sipping out of: but we don’t often stop to look at the lines of it. To see how the curves flow and the contrast of colors play together. Abstract photography reminds us to look at more than the whole; to appreciate it’s individual parts. It is the art of drawing the beauty from the mundane.
