Week 40 – Abstract Photography

WEEK 40 of the 52-Week Photography Challenge is about exploring Abstract Photography.


The majority of photographs taken in the world capture a moment in time. They record something which the photographer thought was important at the time. The captured images mostly represent something easily identifiable and as the viewer we recognise them. However, not all photos have to be this way!

An abstract image is non-representational and reflects the personal viewpoint of the photographer. It’s not about replicating reality, rather it is about creating an alternative reality.

Abstract photography features form and shape, colour and texture, light and shadow in an image. It is your own way of seeing the world from your perspective. As such the opportunities to create new and unique images are raised.

Abstract photography is fun and easy to do – but harder to explain! It involves developing observational skills (look up, look down, look close, look wide, different perspectives, different viewpoints) and creative skills important in all photography, but it needs to be your own very personal way of seeing the world.

Your challenge this week is to explore the world of abstract photography and transform a simple view of the world into something very different! There is no wrong way to do this – so go, have fun, and make some unique and special images!

As ever, these challenges are to encourage new photography, so we ask you not to simply re-use your existing stock (unless necessary for the particular challenge).

And do please send in your images associated with these challenges – or your other activities as a Club Member. We will publish them on these pages.
