This picture was made during the recent stormy weather that took place in early May. This particular abstraction refers back to this earlier foam abstract. Both of these are abstract in the sense of the image being removed from its context.
However, there is a context to this abstraction which removes itself from all context. The picture was made during during the Covid-19 lockdown. It is not often that there is foam amongst the coastal granite rocks. It is generally happens during a big storm, but the waves from the surging seas usually prevent access to most of the littoral zone. The foam doesn't hang around for that long either.
Abstract photography moves away from narrative, and thereby history, toward an image that is located wholly within itself, free of reference to time or location. Yet there is a history to abstraction in the visual arts. The need for a medium to move away from all context is thwarted by the ultimate context of history. By placing abstract photography within a tradition, the works are then necessarily viewed in the context of their predecessors.
