5 Minimalist Photography Accounts to Follow on Instagram


Minimalism is a growing trend in the world of photography lately, and it is easy to see why. In a world full of aggressive colours and overly saturated images, minimalism provides us with a refreshing visual break. Minimalism is characterized by simple lines, geometric patterns, strong shadows, and contrasting colours, taking on a “less is more” philosophy.

Minimalist photography also makes for stunning Instagram feeds! Because of this, a large portion of the Instagram community has taken to sharing photos in this style. This means a large collection of feeds that are filled with crisp whites with strong contrasts, minimal – but carefully calculated – pops colour, and neutral tones. The photos in these types of feed are carefully curated so that they can each stand on their own, but also fit perfectly into the feed as a whole.

Beyaz ve sade’s feed is another with crisp whites and bright lighting. She shares photos of cozy-looking living rooms and gleaming white kitchens, and aesthetically pleasing flat lays of various breakfasts and many cups of coffee. Each shot is perfectly staged with food, drinks, or flowers, and there is just enough colour in the photos to keep them interesting, but not so much that it is too bright. Each pop of colour is well planned and well placed!
