In a world where love can often feel intangible, a new anthology of over 150 images from 23 of the world’s most talented photographers offers a glimpse into the heart of what it means to be in love. These intimate portraits, spanning from first love to lost love, showcase the tenderness, vulnerability, passion, and patience that are hallmarks of this powerful emotion.
This collection challenges our perceptions of relationships in the 21st century, showcasing the deep connections between partners of all genders and between friends, siblings, parents and children, and communities. The result is a joyful celebration of love that beautifully depicts the myriad forms it can take in our lives.
Here are some of the moving displays of romance, curated by Rachel Segal Hamilton.
