On November 30th 2017 my read reached the end:
Contemporary Photographers of the Abstract:
Because of abstract photography’s numerous and versatile approaches, many artists from all fields of the arts can say they’ve produced some excellent examples of it. Over the course of their careers, artists like Barbara Kasten, Carel Balth, Vik Muniz, Ellsworth Kelly, Andy Warhol and Ed Ruscha, for instance, were all photographers of the intangible at some point, with works that were created as a study or a separate project. Staying strictly in the photographers circle, we have the iconic images of György Kepes, Harold Edgerton, Minor White, James Welling and Aaron Siskind, whom Elaine de Kooning once described as a ”painter’s photographer”. Siskind is considered the most prominent photographer of abstraction, producing particularly important work during the 1950s and ’60s when he worked closely with Expressionists like Jackson Pollock and Franz Kline. The digital era introduced us to the works of Thomas Ruff, perhaps the most notable representative among today’s photo artists, alongside fellow German Wolfgang Tillmans. Hiroshi Sugimoto’s seascapes certainly evoke a sense of the sublime, even though they’re only black and white, as opposed to the colourful patterns of Penelope Umbrico. The works of Michael Flomen and Ellen Carey rule the field of photograms. While Eileen Quinlan explores feminism and pushes the medium’s boundaries, Yamini Nayar’s abstract works draw inspiration from cinema and mass media.”
