Painters are not the only artists to tackle abstraction and, although the figurative largely prevailed over abstraction in the early days of photography, today’s photographers are in no way confined to simply representing reality.
Photographic artists like Otto Steinert, Eric Spahn, Marta Hoepffner and Gerd Bonfert have all turned to abstract photography in their work. Playing with the effects of light and contrast, their photos occasionally resemble those of surrealist photography.
Abstract photography really took off in the 50s and 60s, as the increasing abundance of media like advertising and TV began to jeopardize the value and originality of photography. Photographers were forced to adopt a different perspective on the world around them. They sought in the shadows and shapes of reality something more subtle and more imprecise, an aesthetic dimension that would take precedence over the subject. The history of abstract photography has many parallels with the birth of abstract art in the 20th century, pioneered by Vassily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian and Kasimir Malevitch.
