Art in the Abstract: Showcase of Conceptual Photography

December 28th, 2011

When artists get an idea poised for realization, there are many ways that they take these concepts and bring them to life. These artists, usually working in more abstract arenas, craft these concepts from their imaginations into the physical world by many means. Photography however, is not one of these areas that we tend to think of when it comes to more abstract and conceptual work. Photography to most is more concrete an artform, or at least that is how many of us tend to view it. But conceptual photography is a dynamic, thriving form of art that is worth taking note of.

Especially for those looking to be inspired by photography in new ways. These photographs are more thoughtful than just aesthetic. They are rooted in the artist’s vision and seek to get the wheels in your mind turning, not just impress and awe you with their astounding visuals. It is much more an intentional construct and composition designed to move and connect with the viewer in deeper more meaningful ways than most traditional photography.

Today we have a showcase of some very talented artists, who have brilliantly brought their visions into our reality through their conceptual photography creations. Take a look below, the inspiration is waiting for you.

    Angie, just a fantastic set of pictures! I dont know what it is about the ,Bliss syringe by prosaix, image but I spent more than 5 minutes just staring at it. It seems almost poetic how technology/ development (* the light bulb) and then the flowers inside of it seem to me like a message that technology & man can exist together. Great collection!

    A great collection indeed! All of them are really great, I especially enjoy ‘Breaking The Surface’ for this great composition and fantastic colors making all look like a dream; and ‘The Way Down’ for this sensation of never ending stairs enhanced by this guy going down.
