For March’s theme of ‘Purely Abstract’ we saw a total of 16 submissions. The images shown below are from those Club Members who have chosen to share their images online. Clicking an image will show a larger version of the image and EXIF information (if available). ‘Purely Abstract’ is a theme that is fairly open to interpretation, but a good general explanation could be:
Abstract photography concentrates on shape, form, colour, pattern and texture. The viewer is often unable to see the whole object. The subject of the photo is often only a small part of the idea of the image. Viewers may only know the essence of the image subject or understand it by what is implied.
You can read more about abstract photo in a short article over at Photokonnexion. Comments from the evaluation group that were read aloud at the March meeting will be added just as soon as they become available.
