The Minimalist photography theme contains minimalist impressions of subjects and scenes from around the world. These impressions can be of wider landscapes, often including simple man-made objects. However, the photographs can also feature specific details found in nature.

This minimalist style emphasises the use of a minimal number of compositional elements, e.g. colour, objects, shapes, and texture. As a result, many of the photographs in the Minimalist photography theme are quite soothing and zen. Furthermore, the photos in this minimalist theme often are in black and white. This because rendering a photograph in black and white eliminates the distraction colour can bring.
