Pawel Franik captures the beauty of solitude in minimalist photos

Polish photographer Pawel Franik creates beautiful compositions that capture the scenes of humans in solitude within their large surrounding environments. At first glance, his On His Own series looks like something out of a dystopian sci-fi movie. However, Pawel's images do not evoke grief or desolation. On the contrary, he wants to celebrate the beauty of privacy, silence and peace.

On the inspiration for his shots, the photographer says: "We live in a world of tremendous acceleration and where there is a constant quest for our purposes. In a world where there is no place for the proverbial 'minute for one's own self', the time when you can stop, talk to your own thoughts and feel the desirable harmony is important."

Photography is something really special for Pawel. He likes to shoot minimal scenes which nonetheless are dense with meaning, and hidden meanings in particular. You can see more of his stunning work here.
