Song of a Lonely Bird & a Re-Creation

Photography / Video, 2019

The more freedom you get, the higher you reach. The higher you reach, the lonelier you are. 


The sky represents one’s higher goals: his dreams, his aspiration. The bird represents man - one who desires flight, reaching a higher perspective. In his pursuit of freedom, the bird is lonely.The composition enforces the theme of loneliness. The man is centered, surrounded by the world. And I represent the world with its simplest form—nature. He sets his sights on higher goals, just like a bird reaches for higher skies. Yet it is a lonely reach. People are born to be lonely. Loneliness is an inevitable path to success. It is up there… waiting.
