Abstract Expressionism Photography

I have recently been exploring the idea of Abstract Expressionism photography within my work. Currently i am creating a project which is built around the idea of abstracting colourful fragments of buildings and exploring minimalist compositions. Inspirations such as the likes of Barnett Newman and Mark Rothko play a heavy role within these projects. The photographs use a set photographic style of High ISO on a Canon 7D camera, ISO’s such as 6400 work really well for grain. This grain adds a textured feel and along with ICM (intentional camera movement) Photography the effect a more painterly look is achieved.

Abstract Expressionism photography has always been at the heart of my photography since i first started, abstraction was a first love and a great way of experimenting in my early days with photography.
