True to the word "minimalist", the key to minimalist photography is to keep elements at a limit. That means that the negative space should be larger than the positive. In others words: open skies, solid backgrounds, minute details. Simple lines and shapes are your friends. Squares have long been a staple in minimalist art itself, like the Bauhaus movement, or Mondrian's paintings, or simply Giorgio Morandi's still life paintings.

But don't let the design limitations impair your creativity: the Lomo'Instant Square is equipped with special features such as a splitzer lens, and the multiple-exposure settings to create minimalist abstract art.

The square is your canvas, and the Lomo'Instant Square? Your modernist paintbrush.
