Abstract
Abstraction of the Real
 
  
Curated by
Alan Griffiths
 
"The spring—tight line between reality and photograph has been stretched relentlessly, but it has not been broken. These abstractions of nature have not left the world of appearances, for to do so is to break the camera‘s strongest point - its authenticity."
Minor White (1908-1976)
 
With special thanks to all the photographers, museum, auction houses and galleries
who have provided examples.
