Get the Kleenex ready, this is potentially going to make you blub all over your Pret sandwich. This is a simple, well-excecuted and very well-researched project from New York-born, Paris-based photographer Lauren Fleishman. This project sees her hunting down New York couples that have been together for 50 years or more and photographing them hanging out together in what is probably the most touching, life-affirming series of images you’ll see this year, or your life.
It seems there’s a running theme of love and triumph throughout Lauren’s projects – a quick glance at You Would Have Loved Him Too reveals a stark, raw catalogue of the end of a relationship, and Camp Shane is a study of a weight loss camp. Before you go and get distracted by those, check out Love Ever After, in particular the captions that accompany each heart-wrenching image.
