‘I need solitude, which is to say, recovery, return to myself, the breath of a free, light, playful air.’
 – Friedrich Nietzsche 

‘Solitary’ is an exploration in seclusion, stillness and self-reflection. An investigation in the times when we are in search for true insight and connection to our authentic self.

A time where you can either feel utter loneliness and segregation or a time to think and assess, in order to reach a state of self realization and discover the possibilities of self.

We reside in an age of persistent distraction, often surrounded by an insistent noise. This work investigates the private, momentary search for silence, true insight and connection to our authentic self, a time to be alone.

The images create a sense of deserted space, a single silhouetted figure, on a solitary journey. Night photography is engaged as a form of immateriality to induce a perception of solitude and a feeling of stepping into the unknown.
