Minimalism in Photography: a Group Writing/Imaging Project

on

In my last Web Shutter I referred an article at the photocritic.org talking about Minimalism in Photography.

Minimalism in photography is one form of expression (or school if you rather) that I’m extremely fond of. How, by reducing the information on an image, reducing it to the bare minimum, such big messages can be sent, such draw of emotions.

 This post intrigued me and inspired me to start a Group Writing Project dedicated to Minimalism in Photography.

So, here goes a shout to all the photography bloggers, photobloggers or just photography adepts to write about Minimalism in Photography or take minimalist photos.

 

Instructions

  1. Write a post in your blog that talks about Minimalism in Photography (uses, how to’s, critiques, definitions, etc.) or post an image that can be considered minimalist and write a few lines about it (what drove you to take that photo, what did you intend with it, what message do you want to pass or elicit). DEADLINE: October 12th.
  2. Leave a comment on this post with the permalink to your post or photo or contact me using my contact form and including the same information. 
  3. Feel free to spread the word about this Project (not required but appreciated).
  4. After the deadline, I’ll gather all the participants’ links and group them in one single post. You can then link to your favorites or simply reprint the list.

 

I’ll look forward to read and see what you have to share about Minimalism in Photography. Until then…

    Your interest in minimalism is right up my alley. Without knowing it, I seem to have developed a minimalist style, ESPECIALLY in portraits. I want just the subject and nothing else.

    Is it ok to post examples here?
