145 Minimal Photos Find Magic In the Mundane

© Lulu Ash (@luluashstudio)

For our latest group show, we invited you to submit your minimalist photographs. Curated by Lucy Pike, Head of Photography Partnerships at WeTransfer, in collaboration with Feature Shoot Editor-in-Chief Alison Zavos, the final collection of images is bound not by their subject matter but by their form. Minimalism is huge these days, especially on Instagram, and this is unsurprisingly our biggest group show to date. Winning images run the gamut from representational to abstract; they find lyricism in the mundane, poetry in the prosaic.

Congratulations to our Grand Prize Winner Lulu Ash. Her photograph of a Swahili fisherman at his traditional sail boat in Kenya will be showcased as a WeTransfer wallpaper, where it will be seen by an estimated audience of 10 million people.
