The View In The Eye
Marcia Lee Jones
Photograph - Photography
Abstract Photography avoids symbolic representation, rejecting the notion that something identifiable must be depicted by a photograph. Instead, its object is the image itself and the process of its creation. Though examples of abstract photography can be found as early as the 1830s, it did not become a self-conscious form of image making until the early 20th century. It generally ran in parallel to abstract art, both in response to Realism's decades-long ideology that photography must be documentary. The first publicly exhibited abstract photographs were Erwin Quedenfeldt's Symmetrical Patterns from Natural Forms, shown in 1914.
