Do you have abstract photographers that you admire who are making work right now? Please post links! (Yes, photo.net member links are welcome.) One that I really enjoy is Manuel Geerinck, but he's a little bit of a problem because he photographs his own (non-photographic) artwork to make his abstracts. Nevertheless, if you look at them, I think you'll agree that they are photographs. He's just got an unfair advantage in being able to make his own source material. Richard Caldicott is interesting (see, for example, some of his work with Tupperware). Also interesting is Ellen Carey's work with Polaroids. Hers is tricky because I'm trying to stick to abstracts that use cameras (i.e. not camera-less abstracts, of which there is much that I enjoy). Not sure how much of Carey's fits that bill. Finally, just to mention the obvious, Barbara Kasten has been and is still doing, tons of abstract work that is well-known and well-loved. I'm not a big fan, but she is surely abstract and surely very good at what she does.
