“It is pure, it is painful, it is sweet, it is beautiful, it is delicate, it is strong, it is small, it is big, it is far, and it is wide, it is love.
Love is more than a physical interest to someone, it is an emotional attachment, it is a feeling, the strongest possible feeling in the world. My choice of subject comes from a deep and personal interest in one’s emotional attachment and connection to a person, thing, object or thought.
In this series, ‘EVOL’ (Everything valuable, or simply love), I wanted to capture ideas about beauty, emotional attachment, love in different forms, by still portraying and evoking the classic emotions that accompany love, and what causes individuals to hold a deep and inter-connected relationship between an object or a person in their ordinary lives.
I have focused on portraits that capture this certain mood and universal theme through specific poses, not too structured in their form, but more naturally placed as I want to preserve each relationship into a single photograph which captures a story and moment in time.
Each subject within the photographs presents individuals within an environment they are comfortable in, reminded of what they truly love and share a deep connection with. The delicate and raw motif embodied within each one of the photographs is completely real and authentic, as I am inspired to immerse myself within each story in these photographs and uncover each certain relationship and correlate it through the universal theme of love.”
