Minimalisme

Minimalisme

Na aanleiding van die huidige tema ‘minimalisme’ op Fotoskool en die klaarblyklike onsekerheid wat bestaan wat eintlik daarmee bedoel word, het ek besluit om te kyk wat daaroor geskryf word en hoe die foto’s lyk wat onder hierdie titel gepubliseer word.

 

Ek het die volgende definisies/beskrywings raakgelees.

“Minimalist photography is a form of photography that is distinguished by extreme, austere simplicity. It emphasizes sparseness and focuses solely on the smallest number of objects in the composition process.” Wikipedia.

“The most important characteristics of this art movement include; simplicity (where no excessive subject matters are utilized), repetitions (where artists employ repetitive colors and lines in the artworks), geometric shapes (where rectangles and circles are often employed in the painting to convey a sense of simpleness and coherence)”. Wikipedia

“Minimalist photography focuses on simplicity and its artistic style can be encapsulated by the quote, "less is more." Minimalist photographers achieve this effect by casting aside all the unnecessary components in creating their works. Wikipedia

“Minimalism is a very subjective concept in the art world. The Webster dictionary defines it as follows: A style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity. Some love it, others hate it, but no one seems to be indifferent.” Valery Jardin.

“The goal of minimalist art, or photography, is to convey a concept – or an idea – provoke an emotional response, or provide a unique visual experience. Compositional elements must be kept to a minimum, and the ones that are left should be essential for conveying the overall idea, or symbolism, of the photo.”

Uit bogenoemde en ook uit die foto’s wat volg is dit duidelik dat die terme ‘minimalisme’ en ‘eenvoud’ tot ‘n groot mate dieselfde betekenis het en dikwels (maar nie altyd nie) volkome sinoniem is. ‘n Mens sou moontlik kon sê dat minimalisme nie kan bestaan sonder die konsep van eenvoud nie maar dat eenvoud nie noodwendig minimalisties is nie. Die een konsep gaan oor na die ander een sonder dat daar ‘n definitiewe skeidslyn is.

Hieronder volg foto’s van ‘n aantal fotograwe wat hul siening van die konsep van minimalisme illustreer. Julle sal merk dat daar ‘n groot variasie in interpretasie is en daar sal sekerlik verskille tussen Fotoskolers wees oor sekere van die foto’s. Geen van die foto’s weerspieël noodwendig my persoonlike siening nie. Ek het bloot ‘n verskeidenheid geplaas van wat deur fotograwe as minimalisme beskou word.
