Abstraction literally means the distancing of an idea from objective reference points. In the visual arts, this involves pulling a depiction away from any representational association. You can also call abstract art nonrepresentational art. It is art that does not attempt to portray an accurate depiction of a visual reality but instead use shapes, colours, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.
Fine art photography is first and foremost about the artist. The genre of fine art photography is confusing partly because its definition is rather vague. Fine art photos are images that are created solely for their imaginative or aesthetic quality. It’s the opposite of documentary photography, such as the landscape series which appear on other areas of my website, and documentary photography seeks to capture life, people, and landscapes for memory and historical records.
