This video offers glimpses of the works I exhibited in my studio in 2016 – an exploration of abstract photography: What is real? What is abstract? And how do the two mix…blur?
All the works started out with a photography and successively changed in the process to become “abstract”.
I find that fascinating since photography has almost always been about taking pictures of what is, i.e. documentary. (Of course with the exception of those few who experimented with “photograms” à la Moholy-Nagy and other techniques that departed from the urge to present a documentation of a recognizable reality).
Observe please the inspiration from Iranian aesthetics, including classical geometric patterns and calligraphy, and enjoy the music I’ve chosen by Iranian composer Fariborz Lachini too.
I’ve written about the background of this exploration at Oberg PhotoGraphic’s blog. And as usual the video is uploaded to my channels on Vimeo and Youtube.
