Minimalism as Simple Geometry
|Photo By © Prakash Ghai|
I have a fascination for Squares and they are my favorite Minimalism Subject. Whenever I find them, I shoot them, no matter what. :)
The Hollow Square that you see above, is from a fest that I went to. This is a wall just outside the main building. They were doing some last minute touch-ups before the fest. I was lucky enough to visit the place just 2 days before the inauguration, otherwise this wall would have been a multi-colored one.
If you notice, I did not edit the photograph that much. I kept it a little Dull and Flat on purpose, as that is what I wanted to communicate here.
Dull and Flat is sometimes the Mood that I am into, when I sit down and think about Life.
Only yesterday, I had posted a status on my Facebook Timeline, "Life is a square, with unequal sides."
Haha, well that is about Life, but the Square above has equal sides.
Maybe, those equal sides is what I am searching for in my life.
With that honest thought, lets take a quick look at the Minimalism Classification:
- The photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry Category of Minimalism.
- The basic geometry shape obviously being the Square.
- The Texture on the wall, pulls up dramatically the aesthetics of the Photograph.
- Also note, that the color palette is monochromatic, i.e. just the browns.
All in all, great ingredients for a Simple Minimalist Photograph !
