I understand exactly the same way as this quote.

Personally, I feel funny when people single out "abstract" as a category of photography. Also, when people talk about it, it seems to be always the details of some objects.

To me there is a spectrum between representation and abstraction which is applicable to any type of photography.

Isn't precisely this tension between representation and abstraction that we are supposed to enjoy in photography?
