The agony of Love is a photo series about the despair within the human experience and how people struggle with relationships within the chaotic environment of the world. The series features cinematic compositions, each one composed to create a narrative experience. The portraits express a sense of tension, personal struggle, and despondency. The viewer is introduced to a couple on the verge of separation. It is a close-up intimate portrait where the characters face a major life obstacle. The use of light and deep shadows add a sense of dream-like environments of solitude and emotional depth.
