The medium of Photography has always been about being able to capture and convey the meaning, significance and essence of a moment in time, however, conceptual photography takes this concept to the extreme, via being able to capture a thought, idea, or message to the viewer and communicating it through the eye of the photographer.
Conceptual photography is described as a genre where the photographer attempts to capture an idea or concept in a photo. You have a message or a story which you are trying to convey through an image and, more often than not, this takes preparation for the shot to be a success. It challenges your creativity and imagination, highlighting artistic expression rather than simply technical expertise, photographs are characterized by open-ended and evocative narrative compositions that are reminiscent of film stills.
