“Here and There" is a series of staged photographs showing romantic couples of all ages kissing and loving each other in unlikely and gloomy settings. The couples presented aren't actors but real lovers, the one positive aspect of the series: they add a touch of hope to these forbidding surroundings, which can be seen as a symbol of the uncertain and unsettling present. Taking its starting point in wedding photography, the series represents the opposite of traditional wedding set-ups: unromantic venues, regular attire, no artificial posing. Just the universal values of love.
