Love, the Abstract Emotion

If we took their faces away and just remembered the way we felt love, we would only understand how abstract the emotion is…

A force traveling all spans of time, never needing to identify ethnicity, gender, size, shape. Something shared throughout humanity, no matter the relationship: friends, family, self, strangers, it has touched us all. Bringing light to the darkest of moments, breathing joy into sadness, warmth to cold, calming the storm of our hearts, awakening us from deep sleepy slumbers, making us take the biggest chances in life. Who knew anything had that much power?

Love: the abstract emotion, has been the only guiding force of my life that I can trust, and one that I hoped to capture in my recent photo journal of friends, lovers, individuals and family. Feeling as though I could see it travel from one subject to the other before my lens was an experience I’ll never forget. I am truly thankful for my friends, who let me share in their intimacy. I have only love to send to you and to them all.

  1. Well this did mention that love isn’t bound by gender, ethnicity, size or shape, the pictures only represented white, straight, thin couples and an adorable dog. I really wish that free people could start showing a little diversity and truly back up their claim that love is universal. This photography is beautiful too and I wish the best to the people photographed

  2. these pictures are really contradictory to what you wrote, and i wish you won’t disappoint us so much. this is mediocre photography simply because you don’t photograph what demands to be photographed. i don’t want to discredit your work, but please be more mindful about what issues you claim to be fighting for.
