John H. Abbott - Elimination

Selections from the portfolio of John H. Abbott (not to be confused with the many other photographers named John Abbott that show up on google). His site, which can be found here features two closely related projects entitled Catharsis and Elimination. Elimination takes the subject (power lines) and actual photographs from Catharsis and reduces them to stark, high contrast designs.

I have chosen only to show these latter images because they are in all ways superior to the collection of photographs which inspired them. However, feel free to check out both collections on his site if you're interested in seeing the development.
