Peopled Spaces (1)

         In the previous post I linked an article discussing how people react psychologically to visual spaces. Although the article title is  ”Why Do We Love Images Of Emptiness?”, the author, Katharine Schwab, points out that if there are people in the picture, the human eye automatically zeroes in on the people while the rest of the image may be overlooked. So I purposefully posted only images of “Empty Spaces”, landscapes and seascapes, in that post.
        I do, however, also like to take pictures of people, especially ones that are not posed. To contrast my “Empty Spaces” I have posted here only images with people in them. You can test Ms. Schwab’s hypothesis by monitoring your own reaction to the peopled images by following the movements of your own eyes.
