World Press Photo of Year Winner Does Abstracts

Summary – I went to the personal website of the recently announced 2014 World Press Photo of the Year winner. To my surprise, under a site section labeled Personal Projects, were 71 abstract images of trees.

Use your left/right arrows to scroll through all 71 images

Some are more representational than others

But – almost all are abstracts in my mind using the definition

Not portrayed in a manner normally seen

  1. Ed, Thank you for finding these tree abstracts. When I look at his work for National Geo, Time etc and then look at his tree abstracts, I feel renewed. I’ll look through my collection with a different eye. Thanks! Sarah
