A Minimalist Photograph of Hollow Photo Frames on a Blue Tent at St Xaviers College during a Photography Competition cum Exhibition. 


I went to St. Xavier's College Hathroi, Jaipur to attend a Photo Exhibition. They had recently organized a Photography Competition and the participants Photographs were on display.

The results of the Photo competition were yet to be announced, so I was a bit too early.

There was a big Hall on the 1st Floor where all the participants Photographs were put up. I went through each one and since I am myself an Ex-Xavierite, I met a few known people there, also a few Photographers whom I was friends with.

After a while, a young Photographer who was from the College management, took me outside to the garden area to show me this Blue Tent with these beautiful Hollow Photo Frames.

I asked him, what will they be putting up there. He said, they would be putting up the results of the Winners of Mobile Photography Contest and DSLR Photography competition winner's Photographs would be displayed on a separate wall inside the hall.

Since, the results were yet to be announced, the Photo Frames outside were Hollow. On the announcement of the winners of the Mobile Photography Contest, they would simply place the Photographs from behind in these lovely golden border Hollow Photo Frames.

Before leaving, I thought It would be a good idea to shoot this subject as Minimalist Photograph.

All I could see was Rectangles against a Blue backdrop aka Minimalism as Simple Geometry.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 600 D

Hope you enjoyed the Hollow Photo Frames Minimalist Photograph.
