Moments of Solitude
Moments of Solitude is an ongoing personal photo series. I’m surprised I haven’t shared anything about this series yet. I’ve been working on it for some time now. A few years actually. Although there was a big pause somewhere in the middle. So, what is it about? Moments of solitude is a look into the quiet moments that we spend with ourselves.
Making personal series, a way to play, learn, and inspire.
I always have personal work somewhere in the background of my brain. While I don’t really feel like I can live up to the title of Artist (emphasis on the capital A). I do feel like I have something to say, and creating art is the best way to do so.
“Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.” – Eve Ensler
