Abstracts Photography Exhibition

1650gallery_logo150x60 Photography at first blush has often been thought of as a literal or pictorial art, and the withering truth of the camera lens has often held the power to open hearts and change minds. But beyond realism and narrative, documentary and expose lies another universe of possibilities — a universe where the formal rules of focus, composition and exposure don’t necessarily apply anymore.

It is a world of “anything goes”, where the elements of light, shadow, texture, color and line combine to form images of emotional power or visual beauty, stark contrasts or subtle shades of tonality — the world of ABSTRACTS. It is a world without boundaries, real or imagined –¦ as unlimited as the photographer’s imagination.

This month, let your imagination run wild as 1650 Gallery explores the world of Abstract Photography! Open to all photographic methods and techniques, digital or analog, subject matter is unlimited; real or imagined — recognizable or not! There are no rules, so just have fun, make some good photos and show ’em to us!

SHOOT NOW AND ASK QUESTIONS LATER, THIS MONTH ONLY, AS 1650 TURNS OUR MIND’S EYE TOWARD ABSTRACTS!

Approximately fifty works will be chosen from submitted photographs to be included in the ABSTRACTS 2015 exhibition at 1650 Gallery in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Additional works may also be selected for an online gallery exhibition page.
