Entry Description

"Eros" is the Greek word for "Love". In this series, I have put together images taken in the streets of European cities showing a very simple love gesture: people holding hands. The individual photographs are titled with the word "love" translated to the language of the country where they were shot. In this series, I have looked not only for couples but also for parents with their children, all shot from a rear view, leaving the people anonymous, so the viewer can focus on the hands and their worldwide meaning. My goal is to welcome the viewer to realise everywhere in the world people love and share that love in the same way by simply holding the hand of those we care about.
