– “Abstract photography is about telling your story through aesthetics and elements of composition more so than through a subject.”
– “When you’re able to” see beyond the subject, “your abstract photos will grow better and better.” (photographylife.com/abstract-photography-tips-and-ideas).
The photo in question is more of a semi abstract than a 100% abstract, since the subject itself is identifiable – the dunes and, in this case, the ‘Lençóis Maranhenses’, Brasil – (but, at the same time, it may look like snow instead of sand), and the aesthetic of the photo and elements of its composition as the contours of the dunes and the play of lights and shadows, give it the abstract character.
