Fine Art Nature & Landscape Photography Gallery
Early photographers often had their works disparaged and dismissed. Painters, especially, were quick to downplay the artistic value of photography, perhaps feeling that the value of their own work would be diminished by a proliferation of beautiful images. French poet Baudelaire once called photography, “a very humble servant of art and science, like printing and stenography,” placing it on a lower level than the so-called “true arts” like literature and painting.
Of course, today we know that these early critics were wrong. It’s hard to deny the power and raw emotion of 20th century artistic photographers like Ansel Adams, Ernst Haas and Eliot Porter. And nowhere is the artistic potential of photography more evident than in abstract nature photos. In traditional landscape photography and portraits, the subject of the photo suggests a logical composition. In abstract photos like these, the photographer must invent his own perspective and choose a surprising, unexpected framing. Abstract nature photography invites the viewer to linger over their details. They reject the visual tropes that make nature photography comforting, but that can also be dull and predictable. These pictures make an intriguing and beautiful wall-hanging in any room of the house. And since their color schemes and moods vary so widely, they can be paired with nearly any style of decor for a modern, compelling look.
