Moments of Solitude (18 photos)

Randy P. Martin is a photographer from Austin, Texas who understands our need for solitude. His photos are filled with people who are seeking out a quiet place, away from the chaos of life. What exactly are they looking for? Perhaps nothing more than some time to reflect, to think about where their life has taken them and what challenges may lie ahead.

“A man can be himself only so long as he is alone; … if he does not love solitude, he will not love freedom; for it is only when he is alone that he is really free.” – Schopenhauer, “The World as Will and Idea,” 1818 Randy P. Martin
