Most photographs start with a camera pointed at a subject that is realistic and can be objectively identified (landscape, person, etc.). When a photograph steps outside of these expectations, we often call it abstract or non-objective photography. The photograph, while abstract, may have an intended conceptual subject or it may be a purely aesthetic work.
