Conceptual artwork and photography gives room for creativity and inspiration. The portrayed messages and ideas can be anything from deep personal emotional experiences, to political or environmental incidents and facts, to even mundane commercial ads.
Conceptual photographers and artists make use of well-established, carefully chosen symbols in their work to help embed their message and carry out the idea behind their image. One issue a conceptual artist faces is, whether to go with a universal type of symbolism or not. Whether to have their photo interpreted in a subjective or in an objective manner. That is, whether to symbolize their concept in such a way that would be interpreted similarly by everyone, or whether to play on abstraction and implication in such a manner that would trigger all kinds of different reactions and interpretations.
