Everyone has to set out on their own journey…everyone. Life does not offer shortcuts and there is no one to accompany you. It is your journey, which you have to make.

Sometimes it works, sometimes not, and sometimes we leave others on the way.
Photographer Priyatosh Dey (Kolkata, India), took this photograph of a lone cyclist in the midst of a setting sun. But whilst capturing the moment, does he also capture fragments of the man’s life? Does the sunset remind us of our destination in life? We venture into life’s road starting with a new sun, and finish at the sunset.

But, with the setting of the sun, the story shrinks into an forgettable matter. In the end, what remains is memories and the moments you lived, which also asserts that whatever the journey is, our ultimate home lies in our finale. This is the only road we run all our lives…
