This website looks at the fusion of art with photography: Photo-Art.
Bernard Humphrey-Gaskin has personal connection with the phrase... "looking into
the abyss" ... of course needs to be done with care, as ..." the abyss may look back
at you " ... referenced to Friedrich Nietzsche.
Artists are often looking into the abyss in order to discover depths within their
souls that are then expressed in their artwork..
