Most people think of abstract art as painting or sculpture. And photography as a medium for realism. However, I am drawn to the idea that photography can also be abstract. And while abstract photography is nothing new, I think it is a genre that can be explored more deeply.
I have uploaded a new gallery of abstract photos. In this new series, it is my attempt to explore the abstract side of photography - Impressionism and Expressionism. I should mention that many of these images are still 'sketches' and will be worked on more.
When I was in art school (in a different lifetime), there was a big faction between the 'Realists' and the 'Abstractionists." Not only were their artistic styles different, but so were their social circles. It's kind of like the difference between John Coltrane, U2, and Andres Segovia (for the music lovers out there). I have always had an eccentric taste when it comes to music and art. And to be honest, I don't like a lot of music and art. But what I do like often spans a huge gap in styles and genres.
Check out the new gallery here. However, it's not for everyone. And that's OK!
