Nearly 18 years of marriage, yet he holds her like she can slip right through his hands. She leans into his touch, trusting that he will support her through the melody of lifw. The melody may change but they will dance through the change.

Simple true love...

Title: BROTHER LOVE El Clot is an apartment block in Valencia's historic El Cabanyal neighborhood which has been under threat of demolition for 20 years. Gypsy families have occupied and restored some of the empty apartments in El Clot, where they live in poverty and under threat from law enforcement.

It's never too late to give a little love


The colour and the light of love upstairs!


when all is new when dreams come true when nothing can change then love is here

Ο Γιαννης και ο Άγγελος βίωσαν κάποιες όμορφες στιγμές μαζί ενα βράδυ, όταν ξύπνησα και πήγα στο δωμάτιο του Άγγελου, τους ζήτησα να τους φωτογραφίσω. Επειδή ντρεπόντουσαν μου είπαν να μην φαίνονται τα πρόσωπά τους. Πλέον ο Γιάννης δεν βρίσκεται μαζί μας και με τον Άγγελο έχω τσακωθεί.

She wore his flowers.. a whole winter they lasted blooming in her body, waiting for the day of return

I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. ~Pablo Neruda~

Love walks on hard ways. Sometimes is cold, sometimes is warm It moves between blue and red, light and darkness. It transforms. Love is a lonely road that you never know where it takes you. Melancholic and at the same time the biggest happiness .

Love is the beginning of all things.

Only love remains. Only love.

Give love from the beginning to take love until the end

Just hold me and this moment feels like eternity... The wheels are moving parallel, so do our souls...

Love is the Source of Life, of Inspiration and Creativity. Love Is Everything

Do you love me?

Φυλακή δεν μπαίνουν τα μάτια

Thodoris & Nina He was 39 and she 14 when they married. She was from wealthy family. Her mother arranged the marriage, to avoid a kidnapping of the bride. They had 6 children and lived together for almost 50 years. They respected each other and eventually were in love.


Love. Or the tangible absence of. When he knows he has found his second skin, yet it has shed him. And he? He shall not shed her empty dress just yet. For the flowers in his bosom refuse to wither. He loves (verb, intransitive).

It was the mainspring to start this ,so it wouldn't be erased, as day by day it went further away. It was this that gave us power so that one day we could express it freely. We give our own meaning and shape to the world that surrounds us,so love is everywhere and guides us.

One woman, one camera, one photo and two loves. A man loved the the art of photography, he suddenly met one woman, he loved her, love created from love, and one photo including all this story, one photo includes all his love for her ,for photography, for life

Emotions that looking for their way through an endless road lighted by moonlight as a guide to put them in the place of infinite...We love this magic journey because we are together without speaking... Like opposite mirrors... Just a glimpse and the reflection of our souls gets on fire.

The words became silence... Surrounded by darkness. An independant strength like a small window in a prison cell for a quick leap of faith.The sky becomes the best artist putting colours. Different ones but the dependence of each one make a masterpiece of a small idea about what love is.

Life without love doesnt exist.Love is everywhere around us...nowhere...there are not words about love...just feel it and give it everyday of your life...

Brotherhood means laying down your life for somebody, really willing to sacrifice yourself for somebody else.

We diminish the worth of a picture as soon as we try to verbalize it, because something is always missing. If it's necessary to say something, I'd like to say that the people we truly love are leaving or dying.

Lost in space and time, the water is flowing around us. But we have each other on this island we created with our love. We can find our way out, we can create our own path to life. Love is our hope and power!

Love. Αγάπη. Amour. Liebe. Amor. A few syllables· One word· thousand feelings, thoughts, scents, touch. Love gives us birth, fills us, feeds us. This is the greatest power. Let the light of love, shine!

Both know love is a risky affair , but when they are together, their love is powerful and explosive (like fire meet gasoline) and they are ready to be burned alive .

Intimate moment, taken in the street

Love can be described as a feeling, as a chemical reaction as a state of mind. Love is the instant that everything starts and stops at no time. Love is a random touch, a smile of shyness … her glance…

Loving microcosm

Αγγιγμα καρδιάς!

A child communicate better with a horse as its approach is based on love

To Corinthians, Paul’s first Epistle, chapter 13 Love does not insist on its own way, it is not irritable or resentful, it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.

A lovely couple in Manila, Philippines.

The greatest love in life is the unfulfilled Milan Kundera

Greek-Skopjan borders: Syrian father with his family. War and death drive a father to willingly cross rivers, borders, walk thousands of kilometres to reach an unknown destination, hoping it will be a place where life is freed from war; to reach a better future for the children. Refuge becomes the destination.

My 87 years old grandmother is giving her 48 years old baby boy a bath. He has surrendered himself to her. He is a Down syndrome child . They will be together till the end. At least that's what they pray for. To me, that's the ultimate example of love.


Είσαι για ένα γρήγορο;

No words

As soon as I heard the word Love, I used to keep in mind the old photographs of my parents. When I asked my mother how is it to be with someone 35 years, she answered your father is the beat to my heart!

Whatever happens in life, Love lives forever in heart...

Η αγάπη είναι αρετή που εκπροσωπεί την ανθρώπινη ευγένεια, συμπόνια και στοργή.

Together alone we exist and we are.

Heart (symbol) The heart shape ( image) is an ideograph used to express the idea of the heart in its metaphorical or symbolic sense as the center of emotion, including affection and LOVE, especially (but not exclusively) romantic LOVE ... From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Love, as seen in the edge between present and eternity.

I will follow you till the end of the world

Music. Is. Love.

Love is friction. It is tension and conflict. It is agony. Hence, eternal sameness is its enemy, transforms it into consumption, a hell of the Same, an egoistic act rather than passionate dedication. In the end, it is the trees that teach us how put down roots while standing friction.


The photo I have taken is about a date that I was on with my girlfriend Olivia. We have been dating atleast 7 months right now, we went to the Institute of Chicago and she decided to stop and admire a piece while I admired her. I love her .

It became night suddenly, your lips did not announce it, that they promised eternities. I could not guess it in your eyes because I was so happy seeing myself reflected that I was unable to guess the deception they hid.

Love can come from anywhere. No matter what, who, when, how, love suddenly arises. This bird shows us. It does not look at gender, race, species, living or non-living things. Because love is love.

Love is all about staying. Staying even when everything seems still. Compromising and negotiating together with safety. Love is all about living life to the full even if the euphoria of infatuation is gone. It is eternity versus impermanency. Is it questionable? Sometimes. But it is real. Again and again.

Πρωινό ξυπνημα αγαπης.

Love on film Sunny spring Saturday noon Moments of peace Coffee with view The play Βetween Light and shadow Which in a tender way Touches Like the hand Gentle and loving

Love is giving without expecting anything in return. Yet this paradox occurs: the more you give the more you have.

Love is a Rock, Alive and Infinite !

Η αγάπη δεν είναι αμοιβαία. Η αγάπη είναι ανιδιοτελής. Δίνει μέσω της θυσίας, χωρίς να περιμένει τίποτα. Μπορεί να κάνουμε όνειρα, σχέδια και προσδοκίες περιμένοντας μια σχέση αλλά ποτέ δεν ξέρουμε τι έρχεται ή/και σε τι κατευθυνόμαστε.


I don’t know how to describe love. I don’t know if love lives somewhere. I don’t know if she has a garden…and ground inside. To plant there everything that I feel for you, to be irrigated by your absence and grow up my expectation to see you again.

Αγαπημένα Πρόσωπα

Love, the dream of a night utopia that bonds with the hands of two, suffocatingly and hermetically. Love in the form of little children, who stare with eyes and mouth wide open at black and white stories; vividly melancholic, lively, stories of the past, of today, of the anguished future.

Sweet dreams are made of these...

Love cant be defined structly.It conceals lots of meanings and a range of emotions which have in common the high intensity they reach.If you asked me: How should i experience love?I should advise you: Love the neighbor as yourself (Matthew37/39) would it help... or not?

Ellie posing with her sister. Light fading outside on a summer evening and the rain is pouring. It's funny how fast the weather changes in Corfu.

The photograph portrays a mother comforting the frightened son with the crowd inside the Louvre museum in Paris. The boy began to cry and his mother immediately crouched to hug him. The title of the photograph, LOuVrE, is the name of the museum, but it is written in a way that highlights the word LOVE (in capital letters).

They named her, pray for her, die and kill for her. Lots of them will try to capture her. If she had a face it will be full of indelible tears -oh the promises- and hearts -oh the joy. Her look a coupe de grace. Off with your hearts.

Look at me

Title: Love's shades. No goodbyes. How I miss your touch, your smile. Here you were and now a shadow hides my purpose to life. Always faith, darkens, shines, this love of mine. Always there. Even if your face does, my love never fades.

Greece in crisis, 2017. I see existing diversity, i see people living and feeling life to the fullest. I read the greek words People's Wrath written on the wall, i feel people still keeping on loving each other..

Oh my love.. Put a smile on me.. Ι feel cold..

-Now you stay away, pig. -No kidding, darling. You know I love you... -My heart is a stone. Take one step and you will taste my love in your face. - It's so stupid... everything could be like before. Darling ? Darl...

Our lives have learned that love is not to look at each other, but to look both in the same direction

We wait. For lightness and beauty. The unblemished work of art. Passion without pain. We hunger for depth, yet feed on the depthless. We long for true love, yet chase its mirage. True love is built, not found. True love is old; young is desire.

It is colorful, unexpected, may happen between two children, throws bubbles on the surface, touches bodies, wears a swimming suit, has this summer breeze, makes you lose your mind. What is it?

Lost in a desert island … alone with the sun and the moon, the sand and the wind, the birds and the dolphins … suddenly a sign from the sea, a bottle … you see it … you catch it … but it’s empty … LOVE is NOT there ...

Something might surface from the dark waters, a turmoil of feelings shakes us. Mind, body and soul, we surrender. Dive my heart. Don't be afraid, don't go away. Even if we sink, love floats...

Love culture


Usually, love is not easy to find, but it seems those two were lucky with their search!

Όπου και να πας θα σε προσέχω. Θα είμαστε μαζί στα πιο βαθιά νερά και στις πιο ρηχές θάλασσες. Δεν με τρομάζει το κύμα μαζί σου. Δεν μ' αρέσει η αρμύρα της θάλασσας αν δεν είσαι εκεί. Θέλω μόνο να προσέχεις. Και να με σκέφτεσαι

You are here Blue waves... Back and forward… Someone is waiting behind the horizon... Departures and arrivals are blowing with the wind... The distance is too long… So close to yourself… It is the place of gain and recollection It seems to be easy to schedule the next step... Escape…

A tiny ray of love can shine into the biggest, dark and sad memorial, to the victims of the crimes humanity did. Love can connect people. Love can connect nations. Love is hope.

Love is something eternal .The face can change but not the essense.

The first kiss. The one that makes us one. I am not alone anymore. I can reach you, I can touch you and lean on you. I can travel through your thoughts and miss it when we are not together. And everything concludes to one thing, Love.

A day in rain, a soul in pain. Where might you be, please come to me. Only you is, what I have, don’tcall it other, just call it Love.

let the love find you

Τεχνικές σημειώσεις: Η φωτογραφία δημιουργήθηκε το 1995 στην Ρουμανία. Έχει χρησιμοποιηθεί φίλμ Ρουμάνικο AZOPAN film.

This is a photo about the love that exists only in books and not in the real world! Someone can find comfort in pages...

LOVE. A simple word. A word that feeds you, inspires you and gives you breath. I LOVE YOU! A simple feeling. The best way to feel safe and keep going. The real reason to exist and smile. DO YOU LOVE ME? You don't have to ask me. YES.

The crossroads of love are enchanted... That is where people's souls meet, fall in love and dream. That is where time stops and each moment seems eternal. That is where words are lost and with a kiss as a guide you travel to destinations that you will never find again

To share a meal, to expand horizons, to get to know one self and each other. To live, to love. Captured in magical Mexico.

Love is disembodied, it is perpetual.It has no gender, no age, no form .It has no critiria .It can be always and everywhere .It is the only absolutely necessary driving force in the universe .It is above all. -Love is the only way- Nikos Eggonopoulos

Even if you cannot move, your eternal love will be your vehicle for every edge of the world...

Take off your gown and come to bed. Make room in your body for life. Make room in your life for love.

Τhe love which is reflected within the shadow...an incorporeal love...an intangible love...a love without gender...a love with fears and happiness...a love which lives in the shadows and fights to come out in the sun...is just a true love. (Thessaloniki, Nea Paralia)

And really... Just like that.. With no trace of evil... Love was born ... Some people heard her cry ... Some people saw her laugh ... And the ones who took her in their hands They still live with her

The tree said: “I love you. Can you see my heart?” The river, the stones, the leaves said: “We love you!” “I love you back!” I replied. “I really do. We really do. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving us. I’m so sorry for hurting you…”

Hold my hand in the night and our love will follow the light.

The love we give is the love we get back


Kiki even at an early age knew, she were not born boy. She made the deicision of her identity with the start of taking hormone pills. Looking for better living conditions and opportunities she has moved to the pearl of the Indonesian archipelago, to the island paradise called Bali.

They say love is a great thing.They say it's something unexplainable,something incorporeal that is and is born within us passed on to others without money, gifts,or promises.Love is given to the world freely because if it were bought nobody would have it. Love is offered selflessly just like a hug.

A revolutionary motion, a centripetal force, after which nothing is as before, never so perfect. Two planets choose to orbit together, as in dance, around life. A cure, an embrace, able to protect from the passage of time and to cleanse stains of the past. Love is the heart's softener.

Από τοίχο, στην ιστορική συνοικία ''Αγία Τριάδα'', της παλιάς πόλης Ηρακλείου Κρήτης.

Ενα κόκκινο τριαντάφυλλο ειναι ο απόλυτος εκφραστής του πάθους, είναι σαν να λέει “Σ’ αγαπώ! Δεν χρειάζεται κατι ακριβό για να σου στείλει κάποιος ένα μήνυμα αγάπης ! Το πιο γλυκό κομμάτι της ζωής είναι να περιμενεις το παιδί σου!Γιατι θα σου αλλάξει ολη σου την ζωή ! Περιμένεις με ανυπομονησία την στιγμή να το παρεις στην αγκαλιά σου και να του δώσεις απλόχερα όλη την αγάπη που κρύβεις μέσα στην καρδία σου.

Love is like waiting for the bus during a spring day in the middle of nowhere. You don't know when it will arrive and where it will take you. You just feel that it's worth the waiting.

When you let the child's love to transform your heart, you will be rejuvenated. Judy Ford, author

Αγάπη από την αρχή και μέχρι το τέλος. Αγάπη που παίρνεις και δίνεις και σε όλη της τη διάρκεια κάνει τις δύο καρδιές να νιώθουν την ίδια ζεστασιά.

Tiny tootsies that show up unexpectedly and fill one's life with love eternally

Dear Sirs My name is Krasimir Kolev - living in town of Burgas - Bulgaria. The photografy is a hobby for me. Send you a picture made in my visit in Vietnam - region of Da Nang sity. Thank you.

Beloved Hands. Tender Hands that loved and been loved. Gentle Ηands that lulled and embraced. Strong Ηands that dug up and worked hard. Thoughtful Ηands that treated the loved ones. Unforgettable Ηands that went away, but left behind...eternal LOVE

I do not know what love becomes in the long run but in the beginning it is definitely innocence and devotion.It is like children's candid eyes and their need to hold tightly on to each other.

You know yourself from the first beat of your heart. You grew up making dreams. You succeed and you failed. You fell and you got up again. You are always there in your goods and your bads. You are Unique. Love yourself as you are

Our road you used to call so...going and coming and your mind being white, like the light through the window.Like the white light of our heart filled this house..But only the light is still here...Going the through the window every morning..

Αγάπη για αυτούς που μας λείπουν , αναπολώντας τις όμορφες στιγμές.

walking all my life besides you...

The spy of love

Title: Love and tenderness

Σχέσεις Εξ αίματος Είναι η στιγμή που δύο κρίκοι ενός γενεαλογικού δέντρου βιώνουν διαφορετικά την απώλεια. Ο ένας προσπαθώντας να ξεχαστεί βγάζοντας βόλτα το μικρό και ο άλλος απορώντας γιατί έχει τόσο κόσμο το σπίτι. Ανοίκειο, για την περίσταση, παιχνίδι και γέλιο, κράτημα στοργής, εμπιστοσύνης, αγάπης.

I can stand still for hours for you… You can pinch or caress me, hug or push me, you can laugh at me or even try to choke me but I will always remain still and silent. I never grow old. Stare me in the eyes. See my unconditional love.

Just turn and see me for a moment Kiss my forehead only once Keep the words of silence Embrace my sadness


Love is neither an obligation nor a daily-routine. Love is not something you can plan. It has nothing to do with play and pause like a movie or a song. Love is an instict. So, don't try to limit it.

General Thuoc was repairing the wheechair for his wife. During the war, she was staying home, taking care of the family and raising the children while he was away. After the war, he returned home and had taking care of her more than 10years when she got seriously sick.


Isfahan (IRAN), may 2015 - Meidān Naqsh-e jahān, میدان نقش جهاﻥ, which means World's Image: in the second biggest square in the world love wins over every form of government, dictatorship, regime, or control. Embracing and loving is the only way for revolution.

‘Love, love, love, says Percy. And hurry as fast as you can along the shining beach, or the rubble, or the dust. Then, go to sleep. Give up your body heat, your beating heart. Then, trust.’ Mary Oliver On asking her dog, Percy, how to Live one’s Life

Once upon a time in Lima, a couple was enoying its Love sitting on the grass and staring at the ocean... but were they alone? Love was in the air and a paraglider could see them!

Erica and Rodrigo are expecting their first child and they invited me to document this special moment on their lives. We spent the whole day talking about love, life and strange connections that bring us all together. We're all conected.

Love overcomes fear.

Grandfather Dimitris, grandson Dimitris. Meeting each other at the day of Easter...different age, same name, unlimited love.


Survived chemo and while regrowing hair, magic kisses rained me with happiness within the swirling light of Love...

By definition, Love is a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes. I couldn’t think of anything better than the strong bond between this enamored couple under the sunlight!

Photographing my pregnant friend I was in awe as I realized that she is experiencing something absolutely magical! Within a person another one is growing; creating life from her life. Waiting in bliss to share everything she has, she would turn the world around to ensure it's happiness. Maternal love is beyond everything and everyone

…and there it comes, like a burning lava which makes even the rocks melt…so devastating yet so profound. I will endeavor to keep this warmth eternally.

Love is ageless and the passage of time does not affect it. But love has existed in the universe since space was created and time began its journey. Intangible and infinite, it drives people to unconventional situations, until it dissolves like the world in the fire(Solvet saeclum in favilla).

In sunny sunday morning the family moments stay memorable

the beauty of love has no person......

Love is an endless road that leads to life and unity.. Love is the light that shines between our hearts.. Its the sun the sea and the sky.. Its you.. Its me..


Αγάπη.. αυτό που μας ενώνει .. αυτό που μας χωρίζει.. αυτό που χάσαμε .. που ψάχνουμε να βρούμε… ν’άναι ζωγραφισμένο… στον ξεθωριασμένο μισογκρεμισμένο τοίχο… ανάγκη για αυτόν που το σχεδίασε ..ανάγκη για μένα που το λάτρεψα…

You should fall in love with someone with whom you will feel as if you could plant a tree and watch it grow together. If you start by having a foundation as solid as the ground, love will evolve and grow strong as the trees during the stormy wintery days.

Shadows on love.

My God, how much you love us! How beautiful you made the “Love” for your Adam and Eve! And how grateful we are that you left us to take it with us, for us and forever.

freindly love ......................... xronia polla happy easter

Μια καρδιά στη Γαύδο...

Το φιλί του αποχαιρετισμού απο ενα νεαρό ζευγάρι στο Buenos Aires.

Sweet burden. A child visiting the Science Museum in Tokyo, have a nice day, then tired, his mother wanted to let him take a good rest, and have a good dream.

talk to me so I can hear you, I want you because you exist, smile to me so I can I dream, I live because you exist, until the end of the time.

“I love you”, said the steel. “I’m fragile. I’m scared”, the porcelain replied. Then, he put his arms around her holding her tightly. “Let me show you how we can be unbreakable together”.

Πώς να γράψω για αγάπη την εποχή που όλα είναι ρευστά;Ποιες λέξεις να ταιριάξω...Ένα μονάχα ξέρω, η αγάπη έχει μονάχα αρχή, το τέλος της δεν το συνάντησα ως τώρα...

Symmetric out of focus love!

Dance me to the end of love

Ένα σύννεφο σε σχήμα καρδιάς πλανάται πάνω από την Σχολή Θετικών Επιστημών του Α.Π.Θ. - πέρα από τέχνη θέλει και τύχη !

Go to the edge of the world and love will find you.

Most parents in my environment raise their children like goldfishes in a bowl, in order to protect them from any harm or risk. They create low self-confidence people, who consider adult’s world suffocating. This anti-LOVE is a protective umbrella against experiencing life, often responsible for Peter Pan’s syndrome.

Inside every human being sleeps the seed of love. This seed, which we all have in our heart, can grow to a beautiful flower. With respect, honesty and dedication. True love is not afraid of the temporary misty raindrops because it is true and pure.

Malu my great love

You have me!

Η αγκαλιά της μάνας...

Love in long exposure

Love is the two which want to be the one pushing back the zero.

A little boy is giving bread to his little chicken. Which depicts a bonding of love between human and animals.

Mother love. Unselfish love. Love that makes you feel free and strong, live and reach your dreams. The sincere love, the one that fills you with warmth and confidence. Love that gives you wings to fly and joy to share all over the world. Endless love.

I would like to submit the attached file for your consideration. Regards, George E. Holroyd III georgeholroyd.com

A child with his pet dog share stairs for an afternoon nap in Kolkata, India

As Voltaire has said, love is a canvas furnished by Nature and embroidered by imagination. Sadhuru will add that if you can look at everything lovingly, the whole world becomes beautiful in your experience. You realize love is an inner state, it is the way you are, life itself.

Times Square attracts many different people from everywhere. This area gives me illusions or feelings, here has everything from everywhere. Border between people either political or personal, across race, gender, distance, time we passed through, things, sounds, smell, emotions, activities, love all merging together making big stream on the street.

love is strange...love is everywhere..love is everything..uses all our sences..the moves of our body..

even just to love is such a great gift,and its incredible how my heart can give so much and to be feel such a strong feeling is simply majestic..

The day of the festival of colors for this street-children is of a different kind as with sheer passion out of the bondage between them, they greeted each other by smearing with color of joy which has all the colors of Vibgyor.

If you can see the stars in a cloudy sky, you are in love If you can see the rainbow at the dark, you are in love Love is everything Love is everywhere Love is always next to you if you believe in it

A child's pure soul is overwhelmed with love for everything that surrounds it, not only people.This photo came out naturally while playing with a friend's daughter as well as with her toys. I was immersed in the love we as grown-ups so light-heartedly discarded.Animals and people may ideally and uniquely co-exist in a circular whole.

open your mind, open your heart, let love in and will lift you up...

The subject is a tall fixture situated at Cergy, France. 12 strong pillars, physically separated from each other, confined in a square space with no support structure around reminding us of the comfort and peace which love provides to us individuals in this lonely, melancholy universe.


Τίτλος: Without love / Χωρίς Αγάπη

Η φύση έχει πολλούς τρόπους να εκφράζει την αγάπη. Όταν η αγάπη εκδηλώνεται μέσα από το φιλί των περιστεριών.

A couple that is not, says goodbye with the revelation that in other times they could have been boyfriends. They have always been friends, with a special relationship. Love in friendship is a genuine feeling, pure, and true. Love also exists when people say goodbye.

Μια φωτογραφία τραβηγμένη στην Βενετία. την πόλη που επιλέγουν αρκετοί ως προορισμό για να παντρεύουν ή για γαμήλιο ταξίδι. Μπορεί βεβαία εμένα να μου τράβηξε την προσοχή το νεόνυμφο ζευγάρι. θέλησα όμως να βάλω στην σκηνή το κόκκινο μπουφάν τις κυρίας. και την ώρα του κλικ αυτή γύρισε και τρόμαξε που με είδε. προσφέροντας μου μια φωτογραφία με ωραίο συνεσθιματικο κοντράστ. τον τρόμο της κυρίας στο πρώτο πλάνο και στο βάθος το ζευγάρι που φωτογραφιζετε ζώντας τον ερωτά του.

This photo was made on rocknroll party. I saw teens kissing. And i really loved this moment. Black and white hair, their energy... and i thought it was two girls. But i was mistaken. It was girl and a boy.

Komotini, Greece

Love is the most powerful invisible force. This power explains everything and gives meaning to life. If we want our species to survive, if we want to find the meaning of life, if we want to save the world and every person with sensations that reside in it, love is the one and only answer.

Keeping The Butterflies Alive In A Long Distance Relationship

I am a Russian-born photographer based in Berlin, Germany.

You can change the way people think but you never can change the way they love.

Turkey, many years ago, In a degraded part of Nigde, A young couple looks over the city and dreams. Looking at them now I wonder: Did their love make it through or did it get lost Leaving behind as a single footprint, this photo In the hands of a stranger?

The child has not learned the language yet, but he knows the love.

Η φωτογραφία είναι μια αναφορά στην ταινία ο ΤΙΤΑΝΙΚΟΣ. Μετά την προβολή της ταινίας, η αφίσα της τυπώθηκε σε διάφορες επιφάνειες και έγινε το σύμβολο της αιώνιας αγάπης. Στη συγκεκριμένη φωτογραφία, η εικόνα είναι τυπωμένη πάνω σε μια ολόσωμη πετσέτα μπάνιου. Προκειμένου να κάνω μια αναφορά στην ταινία αλλά και στο υδάτινο στοιχείο που ήταν κυρίαρχο, βύθισα την πετσέτα σε ένα ποτάμι και την άφησα να σκεπαστεί από το νερό. Πάτησα το κλείστρο και αισθάνθηκα το νόημα της χαμένης αγάπης.

I believe that love IS reflected. If we put forth love, kindness, and compassion into the world, it will be returned to us. Sometimes we have to make a conscious choice between vengeance and forgiveness--it is not always the first or obvious response to slights leveled against us.

Right to LOVE & PLAY. I manipulated a snapshot, made when “we” played outside, to express my call for child friendly towns, more respect & cultivation of children rights.

Now I am 24 years old, in the design field received a lot of awards also served as an international judges, which are from the father and mother love for me.

She was right next to me, holding me. Tight. But I felt it. She would be leaving soon. She will be shining in other suns. She will be sailing in other seas. Oh, how fairly the moon suited her! The scent of life was hers. Never let me go.

Letícia Zica's work transits with accuracy and balance between her poetics and the firmness of her aesthetic conception, in such a way that, if analyzed in its integrity, her production becomes a cohesive and significant vision on some of the questions that pervade brazilian woman's life of the XXI. century. Using her own body as a starting point, her photographs build a sensitive bridge that connects her to other women, dissipating barriers of individual differences and creating a critical panorama that, in general terms, focuses on situations that are constantly experienced by all who share this gender.

Love manifests itself in many ways. It can be a person, a memory, a moment, a place, or just a fictional character. Love is pure energy and everyone chooses an object to channel this energy, therefore love is ephemeral and universal.

That trip for me was an exotic and unforgettable experience.....
