Simplicity In Photography: The Ultimate Sophistication

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Check out these beautiful highlights from the recent “Smart Simplicity” mission.

Simplicity is the glory of expression.

Walt Whitman

It was Leonardo Da Vinci who once said that simplicity was the ultimate sophistication. In fewer places is this seen as clearly as in photography. Our recent mission, Smart Simplicity, was all about capturing minimalism in a photograph – focusing on clean aesthetics, strong lines, bold colors and simple design.

The results were amazing, and we’re delighted to announce that the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) chose to license and buy images from Snev Rotbok, Aiye, 小熊 丘 and Curmichfar to use on their new website. Well done! Be sure to keep scrolling to check out the full image collection below – if you’re a fan of minimalism in photography, this will be just your cup of tea.
