WHAT MAKES PHOTOGRAPHY ART?
Depending on your reference, there are many different definitions and interpretations of what fine art photography is. A common shared theme is that it is photography originally captured for the purpose of later being used as art. Imagine a photographer seeking out a particular landscape at a certain time of day and staging themself at an ideal vantage point to capture a stunning photograph. Picture a photographer that discovers a centuries-old tree and is drawn in by its natural curves and weathered bark. The resulting photography art created from both these scenarios was originally imagined through an artistic lens and creative thought.
Minted’s impressive collection of fine art photography includes more than 1500 limited-edition prints spanning countless subject matters. Shop images of natural landscapes, impressive architecture, human interaction, undisturbed wildlife, and so much more. Marvel at how artists use elements such as light, shadows, focus, point-of-view, and color to manipulate the mood or effect of a photograph. Whether looking to decorate a home or office, you are sure to find unique art photography on Minted that captures the look you are trying to achieve. Because each of our prints is limited to 350 sales per size and colorway, we ensure that the art hanging on your wall is extremely rare and void of mass circulation. Choose to have your art framed or printed on canvas.

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY TO MATCH YOUR STYLE
Whether you are looking for wall decor for your living room, bedroom, bathroom, kids room, nursery, or vacation home, we have an abundant variety of fine art photography styles to match any theme or look. Because of our wide selection, it is also easier to pair prints into chic diptych and triptych arrangements. Use our search filters to sort offerings by color or style like abstract, landscapes, minimalist, and more. Below we have listed out a small subset of options we provide.
- Landscapes: Mother Nature has a way of creating some beautiful masterpieces. From untouched desert plains and misty forest canopies to rocky coastlines and pristine white sand beaches, our collection of landscape photography can brighten any room. Search for photography wall art that reminds you of one of your favorite travel destinations or even a setting that is on your bucket list. Have your wall decor reflect the changing seasons outdoor by featuring a sunny beach or lake shot in summer months and replacing the wall hanging with imagery of snow-capped mountains or colorful autumn leaves in the fall or winter months.
- Wildlife/Animals: You don’t have to be a passionate animal-lover to appreciate some of our wildlife photography. There is beauty found in the intricacies of butterfly wings, the bulging muscles of a one-ton bull, or the gracefulness of a perched owl. If you live on a ranch you may enjoy our collection of art photography that captures horses, cows, goats, lambs, and other farm animals. For a tropical-inspired look consider showcasing art depicting colorful birds or a whale’s tail. An image of a vibrantly pink flamingo could work perfectly in a Florida coast vacation home.
- Abstract: Inspire deep thought and reflection through abstract photography. Artwork in this styling captures your imagination as you celebrate the awkward arrangement of windows on the side of a building, the way a shadow is cast on a sidewalk from a street sign, or the simplicity of rivets bolted into a steel beam. Other forms of abstract photography experiment with shots taken out of focus, oversaturated with light, or with color arrangements inverted. Consider including an abstract piece in your gallery wall for a truly artistic look.
- Modern: Aiming for a modern aesthetic with your wall decor? Trigger this search filter to view framed photography you could picture seeing at some of the top modern art galleries around the world. Celebrate new techniques that include innovative photo editing practices.
- Minimalist: The minimalist look has gained traction in recent years. If your interior design and wall decor are going to be scaled back, it is only natural that the imagery depicted in the photography you choose should also be easy on the eyes. Choose a piece of photography art that captures the beauty of a lone tree or the creases in a palm frond. Consider a minimalist theme for a tiny home or small home office space.
- Flora/Fauna/Botanical: Bring the vibrant colors and shapes of roses, tulips, and wildflowers onto the walls of your home. Play homage to some of the plants, trees, and other forms of greenery that are found outside your home. We have collections of artwork depicting cactus, weeping willows, palm trees, giant pine trees, cherry blossoms, and so much more.
- Food: A quirky look for a kitchen or dining room could include wall decor featuring some of your favorite cuisines. Fun photography art options in this style include pictures of pineapples and bananas at a road-side fruit stand, an assortment of colorful French macaroons, or various shades of coffee poured in ceramic mugs. Play to a sweet tooth with imagery of rock candy, chocolate chip cookies, and ice cream cones.
- Architecture/Cities: For the engineer, architect, or mathematician, there is beauty in symmetry and how shapes come together. Sort through photos of bridges, city skylines, historic European buildings, and cascading staircases.
- Rustic: Capture a rustic vibe in your home decor with our assortment of rustic photography art. Images of wild horses, grazing buffalo, an abandoned canoe on a lake, and fallen pinecones help portray a simple and natural environment.
