if you indeed want as output the images 1, 2, and 3 only, 
you need a search for (a OR b) AND (NOT c).

Using the advanced search, that's easy enough:
first search group: 
make sure that in the 'options' (toggle at top right) you select 'Meet Any of 
the folllowing conditions),
and select the tags 'a' and 'b' in '*tags* return items with tag' 

Add a search group,
there, in the options field, select 'none of these conditions are met',
and under '*tags* select tag c, 
combine the two with 'AND' (if necessary, click on the "OR" in the group title
