Colour (Two Photographs)

I was reading an article on Jackson Pollack’s abstract expressionism and why it was important and innovative. Drip art, no matter how clever the paint and approach may not be to everyone’s liking. But the article made me think about an approach to photography. The photos here are very differenteven if they’re of the same subject. In one, the photo relies on shape and form, shadow and light and is easily seen for what it is. The second is a bit harder to decipherbut it depends more than the first on color and shape to have meaning and is more abstract. Like drip painting this may not be to everyone’s taste, but a little more is left to the imagination than the straightforward depiction of the thistle.
