When asked about the type of brushes and paints used in the creation of his art, one is usually surprised to hear the camera is his brush, the screen is his canvas, and the world is his paint.

With a primary focus on using today's modern technology to create his art, Brian is currently only wielding his iPhone. This form of photography is called iPhoneography, or in this instance, Abstract iPhoneography.

Upon discovering Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), he has spent the last four years driven by exploration to "perfect" the use of this technique in combination with various shutter speeds and editing processes.

Moreover, you may be surprised to learn no brushes, textures, image overlays, or blurs, are ever used in the making of his photography.

While immersing himself in ICM exploration, the discovery of several other forms of abstract photography has come to life, and the possibilities now appear to be limitless.

Most of his photography does not reference a recognizable form. Therefore the results are deconstructed to the extent where meaning shifts and interpretation takes hold.

By creating abstract views of concrete objects, the artist morphs reality, producing powerful images that become personal to each viewer, allowing one to visually and emotionally experience a unique perspective of the world in which they live.

Born in the '70s, Brian Michael Jones spent most of his life on the move. When it came time to live his own life, he headed off to college with hopes of becoming an artist (inspired by other artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Wassily Kandinsky, and Willem de Kooning), and he left a designer.

Even after twenty successful years as a designer, the desire to pursue art never faded. Then, after a significant life event, a hobby was suggested as a coping mechanism. A few months later, he stubbled upon abstract photography by unknowingly taking a picture while his iPhone was in motion.

A "happy accident," that's what he calls his first abstract photograph. The blurred and chaotic results of the image brought a sense of peace and understanding to the artist, thus began his journey into the art of abstract photography.
