Being on the road can be one of two things (at least in the most general of senses), lonely or therapeutic--or perhaps even a little bit of both, which the photo series titled Solitariness by Miro Simko appears to be. Although the black and white images gives these journeys a haunted vibe, there is also a sense of serenity and reflection. A person can lose themselves in their thoughts only to emerge on the other side a different person.

Solitariness by Miro Simko may be dark, but it is just as deep. The Slovakia-based photographer, who happens to be self-taught, translates this sentiment by capturing the world in more abstract form. He explains, "Taking photos lets me play with the perception of the outside world, and allows me express some of my feelings and personal views of surrounding environment."
