“The everyday aesthetics of form and color” Wassily Kazimirski
Florian Wassily Kazimirski was born in 1986 and studied Photography Design in Berlin. Minimalist from head to toe, his work is characterized by a fascinatingly reduced style. In factual but still lively and sometimes complex compositions, he exposes the everyday aesthetics of form and color. Sometimes fragmentary, sometimes spacious, he abstracts our surroundings to clear composition. In 2018 Wassily founded the “Galerie Minimal” in Berlin Kreuzberg. The first gallery with a focus on minimal photography with the aim of providing a platform for this contemporary style and its artists and introducing them to a large audience in Germany and beyond.
Minimal or Minimalist photography is in the tradition of the Minimal Arts of the 20th century. It embodies a style of contemporary photography whose language is simplicity. Her works concentrate on the reduction of pictorial elements to a minimum and the composition of components such as form, colour and line to – often picturesque – compositions.
Minimalist Photographers like Wassily Kazimirski find their motives in everyday life. They discover them through a very special view of the world. On the always the same, the banal. Sometimes they are schematic descriptions of the topography, sometimes purely planar abstract compositions. Sometimes detailed, sometimes spacious.
It‘s always a matter of reduction. To show things as they are. What you can discover in them – or what you can discover in yourself, through them. If you only engage with them or see through them. To find something that you were not looking for. For us all this means mindfulness and the works of Galerie Minimal are their visualization.
Galerie Minimal is the gallery for minimalist photography. Founded in 2018 by Florian Wassily Kazimirski and Fabian Willi Simon in the creative heart of Berlin, it aims to be a unique center for this wonderful style of contemporary photography. In our online shop we sell strictly limited art prints with bright pigment inks on high quality cotton papers. Photographs like paintings with impressive colors and timelessly beautiful compositions.
