A Minimalist Photograph of a Steep Staircase and Red Walls at Jawahar Kala Kendra Jaipur.


When you climb up the Stairs where there is Parijaat I and Parijaat II Art Galleries at Jawahar Kala Kendra, this is the Terrace Area that you see on the opposite end.

I have never been there nor do I know how to reach there. I guess this is a restricted access area or maybe the students having a class can access it. But what I saw and how I saw it made all the difference or else it would have been a very boring/vanilla Minimalist Photograph/Composition.

The only reason I shot this was, that I visually wanted to see, what if I placed the Steep Stairs on the extreme left and leave the maximum amount of Negative Space possible to the right hand side, along with these striking Red Walls.

It looked really interesting and I immediately knew I got another decent Minimalist Frame. Also, I was at a slightly higher place than the Terrace in front of me and that gave a different kind of look and feel to the Photograph. Where you stand matters a lot. Sure, I have captured a lot of Minimalist Photographs at Jawahar Kala Kendra but moving to different places inside JKK helps me get different shots everytime.
