By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

These are the kinds of photos buyers have been snatching up.

Once more, we’ve tallied up the numbers to see what photos sold the most on EyeEm Market in the past month. From your feedback we’ve learned that you like finding out about the types of photos that do well, which is why we’re bringing you a broader selection of photos this time, grouped not by subjects but by colors.

Shades of White

White has a unique property: It’s the color of the printed page, and so we associate it with space and calmness. White photos tend to isolate certain image segments, giving them room to be noticed by the eye.
