Love Ever After by Lauren Fleishman

/ Monday /




If you're someone like me who breaks into a smile whenever you see old people holding hands or giving each other a peck, then you'll love this project called Love Ever After by New York photographer Lauren Fleishman. 

The series captures couples who have been together for over 50 years and was inspired by a love letter she had found from her grandfather to her grandmother. My favourite part about it (besides the photos of course) are the quotes from the couples.

"You really don't think about getting older. First of all, you're aging together and when you see a person constantly you don't notice big changes. Like you don't notice, oh you're getting a little wrinkle here and tomorrow you say oh it's a little deeper. No those are things that just happen. You dont pay attention to those things. You dont realize it.. really . You dont realize that you're.. I mean I'm not thinking everyday, oh my husbands 83 years old he's gonna be 84. Oh my goodness, I'm married to an old man. And I hope he feels that way too."  Angie Terranova, Staten Island, New York.

You can see more from this gorgeous project at her site here or contribute to the project over at Kickstarter.

Hope you have a lovely money-making-commercial-holiday-but-not-really-a-holiday tomorrow. It really is a silly day but I won't be able to resist dressing up in pink/red anyway!

Oh this is such a lovely project. My heart always melts when I see old people in love ... it just shows that love can indeed last a life time.
