The definition of abstract is " existing in thought or as an idea but not having physical or concrete existence". Words use to describe abstract could be theoretical, conceptual, notional, intellectual, metaphysical, ideal and philosophical.
The last few months I have been experimenting with abstract photography and I can honestly say that it is truly getting my creativity juice flowing.
Photography is not just a simple click of the shutter. As they would say in French "au contraire" or as Jon Black would say, it allows you to think outside the box. Abstract photography allows me as an artist to see beyond the surface and capture the imagery in a conceptual manner.
Below are some of the imagery I have recently taken. Enjoy!

Photography is supposed to capture still life. That is the reason why it's called "stills". If an artist can turn this artwork into something abstract then it becomes a stylised version of reality. I think it's something remarkable. I am glad more people are exploring ways on how to give real life a more refined, if not bubbly or giddy approach. We want artists to show us something we don't easily see everyday, but we could if we would only give it more focus and interest. This is a great concept.
