abstract photography: intoduction

Abstract photography is about using a camera not to represent something but to create a feeling, form  or sensation through the use of shape, color, texture, light and shadow. It challenges the  popular view of photography as an objective image of reality by reasserting its constructed nature.

Non-representational photography lives in the contested middle ground between material reality and photographic illusion or fiction.   It rejects photography's documentary dimension in favor of other possibilities, somewhere between painting and sculpture, that include the manipulation of process and printing.

I decided to work on a  little project --a book of sea abstractions.
