For this 19th edition of AAP Magazine, we were looking for submissions of works of art that explore composition and form as a fundamental aspect of the photographic aesthetic, be it pure visual formalism or in support of a thematic objective.
In the end we chose twenty-five photographers (from 13 different countries) for their different approach to the theme.
Understanding shape and form is one of the pillars of photography composition, and it can make even the most mundane objects become an object of art in its own right. Geometric, organic, positive or negative, shapes influence the degree of aesthetic beauty perceived when we first look at a photograph.
Long regarded as a simple means of duplicating reality, photography, now offer unlimited possibilities to reject traditional modes of representation and in this new edition of Shapes we received a record number of submissions created by new technologies.
