Darkroom Gallery Contest “Abstraction”
The concept of abstract art goes back as far as Plato, who stated “Straight lines and circles are not only beautiful, but eternally beautiful”. While abstract art itself may have existed since before recorded time, it did not become formalized until the modern era. As the technology of photography paralleled the trends in art, so abstraction became part of the photographic idiom. Almost everyone who’s used a camera seriously has produced an abstract image, if only by accident.
