My feeling is that the definition of minimalist photography should itself be minimal
The use of negative space is an integral part of minimalist photography.
Minimalism is a style employed by many 20th Century artists, using a minimum amount of components such as colour, shape, line and texture. Within the art world it is considered an extremely subjective concept, leaving interpretation and meaning up to the viewers perception of the work. A style or technique that is characterized by extreme spareness and simplicity. Some love it, others hate it, but no one seems to be indifferent.
Strong lines make strong images. A good place to get started with minimalist photography is by paying attention to modern architecture around you.
The "rule of thirds" applies here and will help when deciding how to frame your subject. Strong composition can also incorporate square structures and line, keep an eye out for strong shapes and lines which might lend themselves to a minimalist shot.
The human element, however small, becomes the focal point of the image.
