“Solitude is the state of being alone. To some, it’s absolutely frightening; to others, it can be miraculously liberating. Whatever the outcome, we try to find beauty in solitary mode: be it a lonesome flower along a deserted road, an isolated bird who got separated with its flock, or even yourself, weary of the buzzings of the world and sharing a quiet, treasured moment by yourself, far removed from society. Show us shots of inhabited territories with no signs of occupation; desolate, deserted & silent shots; or subjects which are not associated with others of the same kind. Let your individuality stand out & embrace the silence…”

- Eve Tan (venusattack)
