The Simple Things – Minimalism and Minimal Photography
Minimalism is known to be more than minimal photography. The big picture often reflects in the detail.
It means to focus on the essential and to maintain the relation to the here and now.
Not to cling to empty values, but to throw off ballast in order to freely and carefree take moment by moment of the toward the future. Whatever she brings.
For me, all this is reflected in minimal photography. What is shown is not spectacular. It is not provocative or offensively photogeshopped. It is simple and beautiful. The fraction of a second.
It stimulates, in my eyes, essential needs and opens the viewer to the everyday. The basic. Also for the banal.
The question: “is this painted?”
I have often seen this partly amazed, sometimes amused and often satisfied look on the part of people who come into contact with minimal photography for the first time.
It is wonderful how many words you can change over a blue staircase. How long you can be captivated by everyday life. And because that makes me so happy, we founded the Galerie Minimal to
hopefully amaze and delight many more people.
If you have questions or want to share your thoughts about minimalism, write us a comment below. We look forward to hearing from you.
bye for now,
Today we want to give you some impressions of our Photo Walk with Alex Harbich…
Last Saturday, together with the psychologists Janina and Sören von Theselfcare, we organized our first mindfulness workshop.
We would like to thank all of you who visited our vernissage last Friday.
