Abstract Photography


Abstract Photographics

One of my favorite uses for photography is creating abstract forms. Probably my first and most important influences as a graphic designer were David Carson and Chris Ashworth while working at Raygun publishing. I was in awe of their unique ability to transform banal interviews and low-grade photography into abstract masterpieces of art, and so I took their daily regimens to heart. I use photography to create all kinds of effects for my design work, from background textures and Photoshop layer modes, to define a mood and tell a story through cropping, flipping and inverting—and sometimes just to use as a plain ‘ole photograph!
