Minimalist Art Photography


Minimalist photography is known to be the art of less. Such calm pictures focus mainly on a few essential elements for composing the perfect shot. This type of photography art provides a challenge — by arranging only one or two elements in a scene to share a particular message across. In this post, we hope you will find some inspiring minimalist photography and see that sometimes a little shows a lot!

    Awesome examples – very inspirational for the upcoming year. I’ll definitely try to incorporate more minimalism in my photography this year

  • Vivek Parmar, 03 January 2011

    Awesome, some of them are great. thanks for sharing

  • Terry at Blue Kitchen, 03 January 2011

    Beautiful images, owing much to the bold graphic work of photographers like Pete Turner in the ’60s. Google him and you’ll see what I mean.

  • NoNo, 03 January 2011

    Great pics to have on your walls !

    one of mine :) http://www.flickr.com/photos/mathiear/4826432208/

    Less is definitely more, most times – whether its in design, photography, or even dessert :)

  • Rebecca, 03 January 2011

    Some of these are quite striking.

  • Ryan Rosado, 04 January 2011

    You found some extremely good examples of using the minimalist style effectively. I work with a graphic designer and she has inspired me to utilize the minimalist on my blog. I feel it helps people hone in on the important details.

  • Andrew, 04 January 2011

    Very, very nice! :)

  • Guy Armitage, 04 January 2011

    Great works! Quick question, how does one submit photos? Or do you go and find them yourself?

    I’ll sneek this one in if I may? http://bit.ly/dCuULB

    VERY nice! Many thanks, Prakash! Best regards, P. :)

  • Adriana, 05 January 2011

    I love the photo with the leaf – the first photo. I can see it on a huge canvas on my living room wall, it would look great! All of these photos would blend in magically with any minimal home decor. Great article!

    • WingLee, 15 February 2011

      home decor, I agree with u!

  • James Batek, 06 January 2011

    I like the aspect of this vast unreadable texture punctuated with one or two objects which transform the work into one of realistic meaning.

  • Chart, 06 January 2011

    I love all these pictures.
    Thanks a lot

  • Jay Vada, 06 January 2011

    Great stuff as always…inspirational…and I’ll tell you why. I teach a senior commercial photography class to a class of crazy seniors within a tech school environment. I showed your examples and made this an assignment for them which they seemed to enjoy if their results are
    any example! Would be happy to share them with you if you wish for critique! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! -V

  • ashley Beolens, 02 November 2012

    Some excellent examples, I love the starkness of minimalism.

  • Philip, 14 November 2012

    Great website design. I love the way the background soft-focus part causes the contents of the page to look as if it is standing out from the rest. A good 3D effect.

    Oh yes, and the pics are good too!

  • saad Haadi, 05 December 2012

    Great wonderful & beautiful ART. Amazing shots, very well done pictures, love it. Thank you…..

  • Linda, 10 December 2013

    I love these photos, probably because they resemble pictures I take
    (thought these are much cleaner). How nice this style is actually called
    something: minimalist. I like that.
