ABSTRACTS: The Alternative Eye
Photography at first blush has often been thought of as a literal or pictorial art, and the withering truth of the camera lens has often held the power to open hearts and change minds. But beyond realism and narrative, documentary and expose lies another universe of possibilities… a universe where the formal rules of focus, composition and exposure don't necessarily apply anymore.
It is a world of "anything goes", where the elements of light, shadow, texture, color and line combine to form images of emotional power or visual beauty, stark contrasts or subtle shades of tonality -- the world of ABSTRACTS. It is a world without boundaries, real or imagined… as unlimited as the photographer's imagination.
This month, we are letting our imaginations run wild as 1650 Gallery explores the world of Abstract Photography! Open to all photographic methods and techniques, digital or analog, subject matter is unlimited; real or imagined -- recognizable or not!
55 works have be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the ABSTRACTS exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works have also be selected for an online annex.
