Photo Contest: Minimalism

PhotographyPosted by Staaan

Distinguished by severe and extreme simplicity, minimalist photography is derived from minimalism in art, which originated in the 1950s.

The goal of minimalist photography can be best described in the quote “less is more” and is often done to emphasize or pay attention to one single subject in its composition using minimal components such as color, line, or shape. The goal is to convey an idea, promote an emotional response or unique visual experience all in the viewer’s perspective.

To get an idea, have a look at this winning entry by locksmagic on this minimalism contest on Pxleyes from 11 years ago

You can find the full contest with all 75 entries here:

But now it’s time to get creative, take minimalistic photos conveying an idea, and drop your three best shots to join this contest.

Good Luck!
