Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Email this to someone

Like any abstract art, abstract photography is an exploration of color, form, movement, or other intangibles that need not be wedded to a recognizable subject. Unlike other mediums, photography was designed to reproduce the world as we see it with technical precision. Abstract photography uses this technological capability to break down our world, revealing it anew in surprising ways. Extreme close-ups, long exposures, and blurred subjects are just some of the ways that photographers chose and manipulate their subjects to express themselves. Such work is limited only by the imagination. For Abstraction, The Kiernan Gallery seeks images that partially or fully obscure the recognizable world.


  • 23 images will be exhibited in The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia (March 27 – April 27, 2013).
  • Up to an additional 35 images will be selected for exhibition in the online gallery.
  • A Juror’s Choice and Director’s Choice will also be announced.

Juror: Matthew Gamber

All photographic media are encouraged. Submit digital images by email or mail on a CD. There is a limit of 10 images that you may submit.
