Photographer Explores Love Up-Close Through Sultry Photos Of Couples Kissing
By Yoon Sann Wong, 15 Apr 2016
People in love oft seem to be wrapped up in this invisible bubble, explains Montreal-based photographer Nastia Cloutier-Ignatiev. It sequesters them from everything else, leaving the pair enclosed in their own world.
In Cloutier-Ignatiev’s ‘Love’ collection–the third installation in her project ‘The Close-Ups’ for C-Heads Magazine–the photographer explores this delicate, invisible shield through intimate photos of couples kissing. Her photo subjects comprise friends and Instagram followers.
The photographer pushes the boundaries of this bubble by positioning herself as close as possible to her subjects, capturing even the detailed goose bumps on their skin, but not near enough to touch them or make them feel uncomfortably conscious of her presence.
Due to time and resource constraints, Cloutier-Ignatiev was unfortunately unable to portray diversity in her series with people of varied sexual orientations, race and religious beliefs, as she had initially intended.
