This photo essay is a word illustration of “solitude.” My classmates and I had one week to complete this assignment, so we did not have time to have a more succinct collection, such as all black-and-white; however, all of the photographs are expression of solitude.

I rarely take photographs, so I did not a library to choose from for this project, so I kept my camera on me for the past week, searching for “solitude.” I happened across this female in a long hallway in the Katzen Arts Center on campus. The couches in this hallway are usually empty, so it was a good idea on her part to choose this place to be alone. I tried to crop the photo to obey the rule of thirds. Additionally, I choose to make the photo black-and-white to highlight the all of the shadows. Most of the photograph is very structured, with the columns and square couches, but I think the lighting adds an element of peace and serenity.

Overall, I am thrilled with the collection my classmates and I put together. I am very impressed with the beautiful photographs they contributed.
