“Fall in love. Every day. With everything. With life. If you can fall in love, you can be a photographer. I think that is absolutely essential.”–Ruth Bernhard
The Parisienne photographer, Lara Kiosses’s, series Romantic Collection isn’t breaking any new ground, or charting any new territory. Using multiple exposures is nothing new, and using female models and flowers has a long, established history. Nevertheless, the results Kiosses achieves using these common elements are impressive. The richness and the romance shine through. The images are exactly what they’re supposed to be: beautiful, meditative, and romantic.
Kiosses, like many working photographers, has a diverse portfolio. She’s talented, and I can sense through her work, passionate about what she does. Her work reminds me how many wonderful photographers–many of whom I’ll never discover–are out there falling in love.–Lane Nevares
