Portraiture and Abstract Elements

Sierra Longley, Photographer

This series of images represents the relationship between abstract elements and real life photography. By combining this elements we get an interesting contrast between something common, a face, and elements that make the brain really think about what it is seeing. This contrast applies to real life, everyday we see things our brains think are normal but in a certain light everything has other elements. These images highlight the idea that an object is in the eye of the beholder and works to give real life qualities like a drip to elements that don’t typically have this quality like light and color. My combining elements, an interesting visual element is created with something we see everyday and would not be considered traditionally interesting.
