Photographers from all over the world show what love meansVika
Love is a complex set of emotions and beliefs, a deep sense of deep affection, and a force of nature that can be found anywhere. This is one of the most powerful feelings we will ever know: love means being deeply committed and connected with someone or something. Family, friends, loved ones, pets - love is a bond that two people share.
When it comes to defining what love means, each of us can have a unique definition. These 50 photographers shared their unique perspectives on Love and were selected as finalists from over 15,093 entries submitted to AGORA images' Love2019 Photo Contest.
