Less Is More: Minimal Visual Imagery

“We ascribe beauty to that which is simple; which has no superfluous parts; which exactly answers its end.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Less is more when it comes to just about everything and photography is no exception. Minimalism draws the viewer in with simple lines, geometric patterns, strong color contrasts, bold shadows, and solitary subjects. With a stripped down scene, only the most important elements are featured in the frame. As a buyer, minimal photos offer ample negative space for creativity and give your intended focus the attention it deserves.

Declutter your feed and check out a few simple yet dramatic minimalist images found on Media Bakery:
