Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental, conceptual or concrete photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials.
After 4 years as an online gallery, the Glasgow Gallery of Photography opened its doors in 2019 under founder and curator Michael McCann. Within 6 months, the endeavor turned from an trial pop-up exhibition to a gallery with a book and print shop, as well as a space that hosts photography talks and events with a few hundred people passing through the doors and thousands of online subscribers to its magazines and website.
