She Thinks

Photography is abstraction.

There are many ways to define abstract. Every object that we construct meaning around it itself made up of smaller elements, and to abstract is to break things with constructed meaning back down to their unnegotiated parts. Sometimes it’s borderline.

No matter how large the subject of a photograph, it is still an abstraction in that it removes its subject from some semblance of context. Even an aerial photo of Boston would abstract it from it’s important surrounding, which are vital to what Boston is. At the very least, visuals are abstracted from the full sensory spectrum.

Is it obvious what this one is?
