Distortion: Valerie Morris
In most types of photography, distortion is unwanted. Sometimes it can be desirable because an artist can create art that is one of a kind. Distortion is alteration of an original object that could be hard to figure out what it was in the first place.
Distortion is similar to abstract because there isn’t a true reality to the image. When an image is being distorted, the meaning of the image becomes different. Distortion doesn’t have to be taken so literally but most of the time it is. Your perception and outlook could be distorting how you look at the scene or something you photographing could actually be distorting the image.
