30 Beautiful Solitude Themed Photographs

Sometimes, either by choice or by design, we find ourselves alone. Solitude is a powerful thing, and it is frequently used as a way to reflect on a situation or experience emotions while alone. Some people, namely introverts, prefer to be alone for stretches of time, while extroverts prefer to avoid solitude.

The concept of solitude plays well in art as well, whether it’s in music like Three Dog Night’s “One (Is The Loneliest Number)” or in these 30 beautiful solitude themed photographs.

Solitude works really well in photography as it allows for great composition and contrast. Check out these photographs:
