Bhutan child, Paro Dzong. Photographing People

I’m in the midst of a Konmari Method overhaul. I’ve pulled boxes and boxes of photographs from my shelves. There are hundreds here, dating back at least 15 years. And as I toss photo after photo into the trash I realize one major thing: I do not like my photos without people. People are interesting. People have incredible variety. Bodies are fascinating creations. I love landscapes and sunsets and architecture, but these cannot show ephemeral emotions like happiness, frustration, love, and curiosity. People are the real challenge for me. Especially, I recognize, because I am a bit afraid of them.
