Photography 

The subject of love: it’s a universal concept. At the time when I started my research, was in desperate need of a story that would help reshape my perception of love in a modern world. When I began my search, many stories I encountered lacked sincerity and depth. I was searching for an out of this world pulsating energy. Then I met Pierre and Jiyeonne, a French-Korean couple who, once they met on a dating app on the 21st of August 2018, have not left each other’s sides since.

Turkish: untruthful, long and empty talk. 
Latin: word, speech.

The often occurring metaphysical, indistinct state of incompleteness. 
Essentially, longing for longing. 
The transformation of conceptualisation of Love, from the loaded words of ghazals to today’s constantly shapeshifting meaning, perhaps removing what was longed for, emptying it, into a long empty talk, Palavra to Palavra.
