Permission to look at people

I've recently become interested in photography in a different way, I used to want to try and create pictures of empty spaces the way I see them. Natural and urban spaces, and often highlighting the lack of people in the frame, but still feeling their presence. Recently I have felt the urge to take portraits of people, and it's not to make pretty pictures, but to get closer to them, to find out about them, to go deeper into my curiousness. Taking pictures of people is a way of connecting with people, and hearing their story. 

"Photography gave me permission to look at people." says Nan Goldin.

I'll share more photos as I go. I love finding new mediums, or old mediums and new directions.
