"In my opinion talking to people and listening to their stories, regardless of their age, will give one a more complete sense of what’s happening around us."

I have met a variety of people thought shooting this photo series, and I noticed that there seems to be a great difference between growing old and growing up. Working on this series has also shaken me to the core. It sort of destroyed settled thoughts on aging but have created new way more positive ones. In my opinion talking to people and listening to their stories, regardless of their age, will give one a more complete sense of what’s happening around us. I think that a single point of view can become quite dangerous, so if one wants to get a better understanding of life, we should listen more. The people of the work is 65-92  and I am 25 years old.
