We often talk about simplicity and minimalism, and the use of negative space, to create an impressive image. Often what we want, in fact, is to go 2D rather than 3D; to concentrate on the basic shape, not the detail and the depth. Silhouettes can add great drama, and minimalism of colours adds to that feel.
Here is a small selection of images to test out that theory on you. All are monochrome: black and white with just a hint of colour.
