    I agree with everyone above. Excellent collection.

    So much of today’ advertising is missing the conceptual element. It’s all so dry and straightforward, void of spirit, soul, and sex appeal.

    But I think we’re quickly headed back toward conceptual advertising – photography with an inherent friction and message, with a headline that adds a surprise third element. It’s an easy way to shine through the dull and go past the dim.

    You’re ahead of the wave. Thanks again.

    A feast for the eyes. Worth while bookmarking this and taking time to explore the sidebar Recent Articles. This can keep me entertained for quite a while.

    How are any of these good examples of conceptual photography. They are illustration and advertising.

    These are absolutely stunning pieces of art; several of these are now among my favorites that I have ever seen.

      Thanks! Make sure and let the photographers know you appreciate them. You can click on their name or image to go to their work.

    Hi there Bill:

    I always love looking at cool photos. I can’t even start to say which of the shots above is actually my favorite. Perhaps the dice shot by Abel Tonkens or the two kids in a nest by A.madestra. W but who really knows. In the end it doesn’t really matter anyway.

    Thank you for sharing and have a great day,

    Barry
