friends & lovers
This product is currently sold out.
Friends & Lovers, features 54 photographs of real couples in love in and around Los Angeles and their candid message about what love means to them.
What does love really look like? Does mass-media portray love in a genuine way? How do you photograph emotion? How do you photograph something as big as love?
These questions led Dan Busta on a year-long journey of photographing couples in love. He chose the most basic and simple idea, a hug. Friends & Lovers was photographed free of the large production to focus on the intimate and real emotion of love. This project turns the lens on couples in love and features their handwritten messages. The book is an intimate view of real people, in real homes in the Los Angeles area. It shows what love really looks like through people that live it.
