Abstract art of photographs? Blue salt fields in Australia play on our perceptions

Abstract art of photographs? Blue salt fields in Australia play on our perceptions

These incredible images were taken, not drawn, by photographer Simon Butterworth in an attempt to “explore the relationship between perception, expectation and reality.”

Shot from a light aircraft between 4000 and 5000 feet over the salt fields of Shark Bay, Western Australia, the series has been shortlisted for the 2015 Sony World Photographic Awards in the Professional Landscape Category – and we can see why.

“Blue Fields” acts to skew aesthetic perceptions, making us question whether these are truly photographs, or oil on linen paintings created by an abstract artist.

The series is part of a longer term project entitled “Aesthetics of The Unexpected” which will seek to further challenge the viewers perceptions of reality by incorporating various landscapes and structures that aren’t what they appear to be upon first viewing.

More of the artists work can be viewed on his website here.
