Title: Fantastically Alone

About the Photo:

These photos are part of an ongoing project that derived in my first photo book “ONE”, which talks about the beauty of the extraordinary in everyday life, the mystery of people, and the feeling of being alone in this overcrowded world.

All photos were taken in some of the most crowded cities in the world. Yet, I have the sense that no matter how surrounded by others we are, we remain alone. For some, that may mean loneliness. For me, is what makes us unique and interesting. I wonder who are these people? What are their stories? It allows me to imagine their lives and the thousands of possible lives that we all have, to create my own world within this world. A fantasy world. A dream
