Parallels are sometimes made between the natural world and man’s. As an abstract nature and scenic photographer, I wanted to delve into the color, texture, and patterns of the urban world.
My two photographs, Urban Landscape and Breakin’ Thru which make up A Matrix of Urban Life are abstract impressionistic imagery from an old abandoned warehouse.
I challenge myself to capture common subjects that are often overlooked and then refine the photograph into an interpretive collage of color, motion, and textures.
My impressionistic abstracts are original, raw art, using photography as the medium. The image is captured within a split second where light and motion are constantly changing and evolving. – Dennis Sabo
Photography describes a technology that records lasting images from real life by utilizing light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically or through an image sensor or chemically using a light-sensitive material. A camera is the tool used to capture and focus light reflected from objects into a replicate image on the light-sensitive surface inside the device (camera) during a timed period called "exposure". The result is an invisible image which is later chemically brought forth into a visible image or recorded on a digital card inserted in camera. Photography is often used to document a period, mood or moment. The immediacy of the camera's ability to capture images gives cause to the role of photography in art.
An innovative canvas, aluminum comes in standard and textured finishes and is a receptive surface for oil paints and photographic prints. Emillions artist, Andreas Nottebohm, has perfected a shimmering three-dimensionality to his aluminum paintings, while Emillions photographer, Ryan Saevitz, uses aluminum photographic printing to bring a modernity to his landscapes and nature scenes. Dennis Sabo opts for the consistent richness of saturation achieved by prints on metal.
Abstract art is non-representational art or sculpture that does not depict elements of the natural world and signify a departure from realistic portrayal. Art from the Renaissance to the 19th century was realist and representational in nature. As European artists began to be exposed to art from other cultures, they found new ways to depict visual language. By the late 19th century, abstract forms and works began to appear in the art world.
More about Dennis Sabo
I honed my compositional and creative photographic skills when I worked as an underwater assignment photographer, and it progressed from there.
A trip to Africa in 2004 rekindled my passion for photographing terrestrial landscapes and microcosms of nature that appeared through in-camera techniques as abstracts.
Today I am known more for my fine art abstract and scenic photography. Light, color and shapes play pivotal roles in my photography as does the actual medium I have chosen most often to display my work—metal print
While nature is at the forefront in all my photography, I intentionally convey and display my natural world scenics and abstracts so that photography is looked at and worked as a medium different from the masses.
