I have never spent much time looking at abstract photography, because, well, I find most of it too decorative. So I don’t think I’m the best person to review The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography. But I do think I need to mention the book here, given its outstanding quality. The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography, a lavishly produced book, not only traces the evolution of abstract photography and shows the works of many practitioners, but also provides a lot of additional text about it. I don’t know how an introduction to a type of photography could be any better. If you’re interested in this type of photography, it is sure to end up being your favourite book of the year.
