The popularity of Abstract Photography has grown over the years and is now a genre attempted by amateur and professional photographers alike. Obviously some are more successful than others in the field, but a number have acquired a reputation as experts or outstanding with the technique. Each will usually tend to concentrate on a particular subject matter, be it nature, buildings, people or unusual objects.
Some well known abstract photographers include the following:-
Henry Holmes Smith
O. Winston Link
Their portfolios, subject matter and technique vary enormously. But each of them have produced some unique and absorbing works. It is worthwhile looking up some of their images on the Internet, especially to inspire budding abstract photographers and to get their creative juices flowing. It is often useful to see how these experts have worked to catch or transform the image they have produced, so the novice can learn and acquire some of their skills for transfer to their own repertoire.
