If you look at any photograph today that is the product of Intentional Camera Movement (ICM), or some of the other abstract photographic techniques, it’s not difficult to see how this type of abstract, painterly effect has a strong similarity to the impressionist movement in the world of painting.

It has a certain distinct way of showing light in its changing qualities; often accentuating and distorting the effects of the passage of time.
