The Colorful Minimalist Photography
Matt Crump describes himself as “50% unicorn, 100% man” – and this is maybe the best input to understand Matt’s approach to photography work. It is a world full of creativity and imagination, but everything is pretty much a part of the world that surrounds us. His aesthetic is based on two things – candy colors and minimalistic scene, the things he manipulates using both Lightroom and Photoshop. His color palette explains his curious nature, ready to experiment by designing distinctive candy-colored negative space to achieve “surreal compositions, offbeat and Americana subjects, and an endless-summer vibe”. The photographer takes pictures of landscapes, architecture and different subjects surrounding him, looking for rich and inspiring shades. Matt plays with a hue and saturation, so his color palette range from bright, vibrant colors to neons and pastels.
