Abstract Fragmented: A BFA Thesis in Photography Joshua C. Hendrix I propose that one detailed, coherent thought is a conglomeration of smaller, incomplete shards of ideas. The ways that these ideas take shape is completely dependent on our current perceptions and the circumstances preceding and surrounding the formulation of the idea. This theory can also be applied to our interpretations of artwork, particularly art that is abstract or abstracted. While abstract photography is sometimes dismissed because photographs are supposed to capture the real world, I would argue that our individual perceptions and perspectives influence our responses to even realistic photographs. For this reason, I believe that abstract photography certainly does have unique value. My photographs are presented in five groups of four, and like thought fragments, though individually significant, they are much stronger when perceived in a group as a composite whole.
