Abstract photography explores color, movement, form, and other intangibles that are not dependent on a recognizable subject. The medium of photography has a unique ability to reproduce with precision and clarity, the world as we see it. Abstract photography deconstructs our world, resulting in new and surprising interpretations. Graphic elements without context, long exposures, blurred subjects, and extreme close-ups are a few of the ways that photographers manipulate their subjects in an abstract manner. These works are limited only by imagination. For In the Abstract, The Kiernan Gallery seeks non-representational imagery that partially or fully obscures the recognizable world.


  • Up to 25 images will be exhibited in The Kiernan Gallery in Lexington, Virginia (April 30 – May 31, 2014).
