Went shooting around Camden Town market on Saturday. Shot 4 rolls in the Pentax 6x7 and a few snaps with the Polaroid 420. I learnt that I desperately need to get a strap for the 6x7 because sonofabitch that thing is heavy!!
I was invited to submit some images to an exhibition a girl I know is having. The only problem is that the work she normally produces is very abstract and that’s something I’ve never really tried before. As much as I enjoy abstract art, I’ve never been able to understand the thought process behind it. When are you finished and satisfied with something that seemingly has no deliberate form or shape?
I’m sure I’m over thinking this whole thing and rather then force myself into an artistic area I appreciate but don’t truly understand, I should take the brief and fit it to my own style. But it seems a shame to ignore an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone.
Can anyone help me understand the process behind creating abstract art?
