Art Photography explores perceptional dimensions of an image. The art photographer perceives image dimensions that are hidden to the typical casual or unaware observation. The photographer enhances through manipulations in the photograph’s development the latent depth and unseen realities that allow the image to speak differently to the viewer. At times the final image is the photographer’s planned goal, at other times the image process leads the photographer into the creation of an unexpected final image.
Another aspect of Art Photography is the modification and juxtaposition of images or parts of images to create unique photographs that have no connection to the base image, nevertheless uses the forms, colors, and/or contrasts to stimulate the visual perception or viewer’s response.
Art Photography is conceptual in nature and adds additional dimensions to the photograph.
