Abstract photography gives you a different view, where the entirety of the subject is obscured or unseen.
In surreal photography, shape, form, and texture play a bigger part than idolizing over the full, documented item.
Surreal photography looks at creating something new. This comes from the heavy post-processing of images. Or using special effects to create special visuals.
Both could look at the same area of photography. Yet the concept and the final image would be different. Abstraction looks at the subject in an artistic way.
