Abstract photography is difficult to define. It is taking a subject and forcing the viewer to look at it in a different way. This may cause the subject to lose its original meaning or purpose.
It may even render the subject unreal, abnormal and not of this world. The subject could lose all literal meaning and be reduced to only shape, light, texture or color.
Abstract photography is the view of an object where the entire shape is hidden from view. Fine Art photography overlaps the same notion. Yet, fine art focuses on a conceptual look at a subject and its surroundings. Fine art photography has the ability to work across many photographic themes. The photographer and their vision are more important than the photographed subject. Abstraction can be a simple macro image without much concept or idea behind it. It is another viewpoint and perspective of an object we might know inside out.
