Conceptual photography

Conceptual photography fundamentally is the photographer trying to transmit a message or “concept”. Usually this message is conveyed through some theoretical symbolism which can be interpreted by the viewer. Even though most photographers have a specific meaning they are trying to get across, usually the image can be interpreted in many different ways. This kind of photography often involves use of computer editing to achieve the desired effects, but many artists work without the computer. Usually the conception of the idea precedes the realization of the photography. Whatever the technique, conceptual photography is known to be one of the most creative genre of photography.
