Photographs depict a lot about a particular phenomenon that is being framed in it without anything being written in it. The photographer confines the true meaning of a particular situation through his or her lenses in such a wonderful manner that even a lay man will be able to interpret the true essence of it. Conceptual photography takes this idea to a different level altogether whereby the photographer captures a particular snap with the sole aim of conveying the inner meaning of it to the viewers.
The conceptual pictures are absolutely nonrepresentational. At the first sight it will be difficult for most of the viewers to understand its essence. But it is not necessary that the photographer and the viewer will have the same understanding of a particular picture. Since the concepts are abstract, its meaning can be interpreted by the onlooker in any ways. The conceptual photographers generally capture a photograph randomly, whenever they come across some situation that may appear simple but they can find an inner meaning in it, thus providing the enthusiasts with an opportunity to further the imagination.

Flying without wing.
This picture is about rape and violence on women. Instead of showing a rape scene very clearly, I decided to work on it in a very esthetic way, so that if you don’t pay attention, you just see a nice picture. This my way showing that rape and violence on women is something very common.
