About the Book
So much abstract photography is a bit po-faced and humourless. This book overturns the rock that is the abstract image, and finds all sorts of characters, situations, and emotions crawling about underneath.
If you like a good dollop of wordy sauce with your image pie, and enjoy seeing above and beyond the surface, have a laugh at these untold stories ... and make up a few of your own.

I take photos because I have to. The devil is in the detail ... I enjoy form, texture, geometry, colour, shadow, line and light. My approach is unwaveringly abstract, and sometimes wilfully quirky. Titling is a large part of the image. Check out my flickr page to see what I mean. www.flickr.com/photos/katemellersh
