“The idea was to make it feel like a compilation of songs
… a mixtape all about love." We bring you a series of images
to inspire your writing, all centred around the theme of intimacy.
The International Centre for Photography’s latest show, Love 
Songs, charts the highs and lows of the relationships we hold
closest to our hearts. From lovers embracing in verdant fields
to playful collages of gender and identity, these pictures under-
stand what it means to connect in a globalised world. 
 




 
“These works offer a window into the themes of aftermath, contra-diction, collision, desire, distortion and reality,” says curator Sara Raza. Photographs take viewers through personal, often unseen stories, chartering the arc of desire. The process relies on subversive practices, using montage to interweave varying attractions and emotional states. What pervades is a sense of care — through both private and public spaces — in a declaration of what it means to love.
