I finally figured out the style of photography that I’m very fascinated with – minimalism. It is photography to its barest and simple form. What matters most are the simple shapes, lines, and colors. Gone are the extraneous elements and distractions that clog the frame. The overall mood is that of peace and fulfillment. The immediate effect is visual yet the more lasting feeling is etched in one’s soul. The emotions will provide the unseen elements in the picture.
What is ironic though is that I portray simplicity in my art yet my life is the complete opposite. It is so complicated with enormous responsibilities and challenges. I long to be the birds that fly freely in the blue skies. I desire to climb the stairs to the top of the tank and shout to the wind that I will overcome no matter what hardships are hurled at me. Minimalism indeed – so easy to capture yet so hard to live.
