While it is natural to seek company as social beings, we humans are increasingly finding ourselves being alone in our modern society, either by choice or due to circumstances. When good company is not available and meaningful interaction is not possible, instead of blindly seeking company purely for the sake of it, we need to learn to be alone and not feel lonely, seeking meanings in ourselves and not through others solely. Ongoing photo documentary “Home Alone” has been capturing solo-dwellers at private and unconscious moments, displaying our vibrant yet hidden individuality, in order to recognise the value in The Self.
