A Minimalist Photograph of Two Golden Door Knobs shot at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.


This Photograph took long time to make it here. This door is located at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Indian Coffee House open area, next to the ordering counter. I tried to capture a Minimalist Photograph of this Door/ this area 5-6 times earlier but I failed every single time. 

The Two Golden Door Knobs always kept me interested. 


The first time I looked at the door was around 6 months back. I visit this place very often, but I just could not come up with any shot whatsoever earlier. Only last Sunday, was the day I finally got the shot that I wanted. 

So what changed during last week, was the question I asked myself?

Recently, I paused the "Learn Minimalism" Instagram page and many other social media accounts. Well, that gave me some free mind space, say about after a year. As soon as my mind was left with less clutter to handle, I was back in flow with my Minimalist Compositions. 

Lesson Learned"Do less of social media and focus more on capturing on field photographs."

More on the Minimalist Composition


The photo falls under Minimalism as Less Elements Category of Minimalist Photography.

Less elements being, just the Two Golden Door Knobs and the walls next to it. The composition is more of Minimalist Visual Art. 

Here, I have split the frame into 3 parts. First part being the repeating patter on the left. Second, the empty wall in the center and third, the open brown door with two golden knobs on the right. 

Remember: The subject here is just the Two Golden Door Knobs, everything else around it has been included just to enhance the overall Minimalist Composition.

Enjoyed the shot?
