Photograph - Photography
This was an interesting shot I saw on another building. I added gray tissue paper that I had ripped and than retook the photo. Like ripping open something to see what lies beneath.
In abstract photography there are added dimensions rarely seen in other media. Focus can add to the conceptual feel of abstracts by isolating parts of the subject through �bokeh� � the frosted-focus effect created by controlling �Depth of field�. The other dimension is that movement blur may be introduced, while not unique to photography it is certainly a significant compositional factor which is not used to the same extent in other visual arts except possibly video/film.
�Abstract photography� is about introducing the viewer to the essence of an object. The aim is to help the viewer gain an emotional, almost primeval attachment, to the image, enjoying the �feel� of how it looks. For the viewer, abstract photography is not about understanding and recognizing the subject of the shot. Nevertheless, sometimes abstracts are also recognizable as real-world objects or even real-world scenes.
