INTIMATE AND ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY

Abstract photography and photographing intimate scenes are one of my favourite forms of nature photography. They are scenes that are unique to me. Often it is highly unlikely that anybody else will see these details again.

Welcome to my nature photography gallery full of intimate and abstract photographs. While the tangible focus of these images is on patterns, lines, and textures in nature, the goal of each of these photographs is to tell a unique story. What I enjoy most about abstract photography in nature is the ability to communicate an abstraction of the human experience. In this gallery, I have tried to capture some larger ideas that go beyond simply creating a visibly pleasing photo. So, I encourage you to look closely at each of these photographs to uncover the intent behind the photo. Every thumbnail is clickable and opens to a full-page view of the photo. I hope you enjoy.
