Photo Essay

In Search of Conceptional Photography

In Search of Conceptual Photography

"First you decide on a concept or idea for your photograph, then you take a photograph that expresses that concept. The goal of conceptual photography is to make your idea or concept obvious - even though precisely what your concept is can be clear or ambiguous."
