Abstract (adjective /ab-strakt/):
Relating to or involving general ideas or qualities rather than specific people, objects, or actions
Expressing ideas and emotions by using elements such as colors and lines without attempting to create a realistic picture
As a Photographer, I do not set-out to make abstract images. However as I look for images, I always ask myself, what captured my interest enough to stop and look longer. Often times I find a form, or a line that I feel is pleasing and will construct a nice image to include that element in my image.
Sometimes, the line or form becomes the key subject and the images becomes abstracted from reality. The images in this gallery best represent that small departure from reality and are typically focused on line and/or form.
