Alone In The Crowds, Hong Kong, 2018

I spent 10 weeks traveling in 2018, to reconnect with the world around me, to find myself. The majority of that time was spent in solidarity amongst the great oceans, mountains, and deserts of this world. I felt an extreme connection with the world. Even so much so in the dense urban areas of Hong Kong.

Mixed in with 7.5 million people my solidarity continued. Choosing to be alone in the crowds, I never felt lonely. This photograph represents that. The ability to be by oneself comfortably even when so many surrounds you.
