1650 Gallery juried photography exhibition
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, imaginations ran wild as 1650 Gallery explored the world of Abstract Photography!
Additional works have also be selected for an online only gallery exhibition page.
