Photo Review: Abstract – June 4, 2019

Abstract Photography

Abstract photography can be difficult to define. However, it occurs when photographs focus on a fragment of a natural scene, isolating it from its context. The result is the capture of visual information in a way that it would not usually be seen. Emphasis is often placed on details, patterns, lines, form, shape and colors that complete a subject utilizing those key features to make a non-objective engaging image.

About Our Judge, Steve Steinman

Steve holds Masters degrees from the Rhode Island School of Design and the Pratt Institute and a Ph.D from Capella University in 2007.  Steve is also retired from the American InterContinental University after thirty three years where he was Dean of the School of Design.

Steve has a extensive body of work around Atlanta. He designed and produced the art for Atlanta’s Buckhead Marta Station, the second largest station in the city that also encompasses the most art of any station.  He also has work on display in Atlanta’s Woodruff Park, Northside Hospital, several law firm collections, and numerous private collections. He has shown his work from New York City to California and overseas as far as Bombay India.

Retired from academia Steve continues to sculpt everyday in his studio (his haven) surrounded by his collection of old posters and antiques. Steve’s earlier works were made in wood, cement and on canvas, but today Steve works mostly in steel.

Steve also studied and practices fine art photography. His work is always evolving as he searches for new ways to express his artistic exploration, wherever it may lead.

Some of Steve’s work centers upon self-expression, while other pieces reflect reactions and feelings. You can get a better feel for this work by stopping by his studio known as “The ArtZone”.
