14-Jan-2021 ThuAbstractPDIClive Hayward07-Jan-2021 Thu12-Jan-2021 Tue Sometimes called non-objective, experimental, conceptual or concrete photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials. An abstract photograph may isolate a fragment of a natural scene in order to remove its inherent context from the viewer, it may be purposely staged to create a seemingly unreal appearance from real objects, or it may involve the use of color, light, shadow, texture, shape and/or form to convey a feeling, sensation or impression. The image may be produced using traditional photographic equipment like a camera, darkroom or computer, or it may be created without using a camera by directly manipulating film, paper or other photographic media, including digital presentations.

It emphasizes spareness and focuses solely on the smallest number of objects in the composition process. Minimalist photography often pays attention to one single subject in its composition. Some representative subject matters include geometric patterns, lines and textures, which can range between an apple, a mountain or a bridge, to name a few examples.'

It may be a true horizon which is a theoretical line when looking out to sea, or it may be visible horizon when the line may be obscured by land, trees, buildings, mountains, etc. The image should be imbued with the sensation of looking out to the future with hope. The viewpoint should be from ground level, not from a very high building, or a drone, or from an aircraft. It can be from a hill, the sea, valley or mountain. The image should be colour not monochrome.
