Six minimalist images to inspire you

The stripped-back ethos of minimalism is still as relevant today

'Wheel’ by Maria Svarbova 


They all display some of the key ingredients of minimalist photography – simplicity, negative space, strong composition, bold colour and isolation. Each takes the aesthetics of everyday life and transforms them into something extraordinary.  

Now the stripped-back, striking work of image-makers including Dutch artist Maarten Rots, French photographer Matthieu Venot and Slovakia-based Maria Svarbova are brought together in one book, Minimalism in Photography. From two-dimensional, abstract compositions to arresting topography, indulge your love of pure, uncluttered photography. 

Here, we bring you six images from this celebration of minimalism to whet your appetite.
