Opening Reception May 7, 6:00PM- 8:30PM

I like abstract art, and it is a primary influence in much of my photography. I look for objects or scenes that have unusual form and color patterns. Sometimes I see what I want in entire images, but I may also find it in close-ups that magnify a particular aspect of an image.I also try different camera angles to transform a subject. I often find potential for these characteristics in architecture, decay, urban scenery etc., but I am always interested in any subject that seems unusual to me.
