Ten Photographs of Love as You Might Not Expect to See It

Posted on
When AnOther columnist Polly Brown sent us a Valentine – a photograph of a carved tree trunk bearing the initials of passing lovers in San Francisco (see no. 10) – we felt compelled to solicit more love materials. Here, ten contributors share their own images which encapsulate love, in ways both conventional, and not. Not at all.

“This was taken in Naples, of my friend who had a chance encounter with a local gentlemen who wanted a little kiss in a hotel. The holiday was with three of my friends, and it stays in my memory as being the most beautiful trip – where I fell in love everyone and everything.”

“I took this picture of my boyfriend in our bathroom a few months ago in Paris. The most insignificant little gestures of the loved one have always aroused my eyes. I’m very interested in capturing intimate and everyday life moments. It’s very cheesy to say but love is also in small details :)”

“I took it a couple of years ago, by Lago di Garde in Italy. My parents resting after we arrived.”

“I took this picture in my parents’ garden, home, where I grew up in the south of France. This garden is a kind of map of our family: for each piece of good news, each celebration, each testimony of love from one to another, we give plants that we then put in the garden. We know for which occasion which plant was given, when… These oleanders for instance were offered by my dad to my mum for their wedding, and the birth of my brother and I. They are massive in the garden and I like the idea that when I do look at them, I look at our family history.”
