Berlin's Camera Work gallery presents more than 100 photographs on the theme of Love. Specifically curated by the gallery, the exhibition shows the significance of the topic, as well as its many forms of interpretation within the medium of photography.
Ranging from nudes and portraits to animal photographs, the selection offers a varied journey of discovery through the history of fine art photography, illustrating the unconcealed, iconographic, symbolic and abstract approaches with which the topic has been addressed.
The collection encompasses works by more than 50 acclaimed classic and contemporary artists, including Diane Arbus, Nick Brandt, Michel Comte, Elliott Erwitt, Horst P. Horst and Ellen von Unwerth – resulting in a fascinating look at the diverse visual manifestations of this deeply universal theme.
In the gallery's selection, the photographer's love for a certain person or location is considered as important as the illustration, aestheticisation and symbolisation of love. To convey this complexity, the photographs are accompanied by personal quotes and anecdotes in which the artists address the deeper meaning behind their images and their visual interpretation of love.
