What is Minimal Photography?

Minimalist photography is inspired by the concept of minimalism in art – a style of art that was used by many 20th Century artists, such as Ad Reinhardt, Anne Truitt, and Frank Stella. The Webster Dictionary defines minimalism as: A style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity.

Minimalist Photography Definition: The goal of minimalism in photography is to convey a concept or an idea, to provoke an emotional response, or provide a unique visual experience. Artistically speaking, minimalism depends on simplicity, negative space, and involves using a minimal amount of compositional components such as shape, color, and line.

Minimalism forces people to view the world around them differently.
