Love is one of life’s mysteries. It is something that most can relate to and yet there is no one emotion that defines it. Love can bring elation, but it can also bring despair. For portrait photographer Laura Pannack, it is the mysterious and multifarious nature of love that draws her to the topic.
In2012, Pannack began collating a series of portraits of teenage couples. Young Lovewas born out of Pannack’s wider exploration into the misrepresentation of youth and investigates how a “relationship free of worry, responsibility, experience and future plans can ultimately lead to one of fun and intimacy.”
