While photography has historically been valued for its ability to depict our world objectively, there are some photographers who seek to reveal it to us by abstracting objects and moments they observe. By carefully composing shapes, forms, colors, and textures, they create new ways of seeing our material world.

This exhibition explores examples of abstract photography created by members of The Photo Society.

Artists on display include Bob Canepa, Kathleen Bosch, Erik Olson, Gary Smaby, Pat Brown, Yael Korin, James O’Donnell, Cat Evans, Nic Stover, and Patrick McGinnis
