Pattern, line, and color. Minimalism. Minimalism is a trend I’ve found on Instagram by following a few others, who dabbled in it. This led me to @jelloet. Primarily taking photos in Los Angeles, Carolina Inés looks at familiar scenes, but in a way to bring out the color in a soft, brilliant way.
These photos appear to be simple. But as with many other media, simple is harder than it looks. Our world is complex, so it can be hard to boil it down to a simple idea.
Many of Carolina Inés’ photos show subjects that I enjoy photographing as well. Her vision is very different than mine though, which is part of the thrill. My own work tends more to the complex and the nuances of the details. Perhaps that is why @jelloet’s vision mesmerizes me so.
