Minimalism in photography

What is a minimalist photo? Minimalism as an artistic genre of visual arts originated in the early 1960s in New York. The rise of minimalism is associated with artists such as Robert Ryman, Al Held, Ellsworth Kelly, Frank Stella, and Kenneth Noland. Even in the field of photography, there are many great minimalist photographers who are engaged in a variety of genres. For example, Michael Kenna and his minimalist landscapes, Hans Hiltermann with his minimalist portraits or Mark Meyer and his photographs taken through the same window of his bedroom.

On Wikipedia, you can find this definition of minimalism: “(minimalism in visual arts) expose the essence, essentials or identity of a subject through eliminating all non-essential forms, features or concepts”.

That says it all.

On this site I will try to show how I perceive minimalism. You can view the various photo projects from different areas of photography.
