Love me tender
After a toxic relationship in 2014, I thought of a photographic series to say how much we believe to control what in reality sometimes escapes us, for the best or the worst. 10 years later, Love Me Tender is born with the resilience I needed. Through an approach to Love in its diversity (heterosexual, homosexual, plural, multiracial, multi-age, friendly, asexual or asexual), Love me tender places itself in the center of relationships. Thanks to a snapshot overlooking 3m2 dedicated to intimacy, the images describe fusion, tenderness, harmony but also jealousy, danger. A bed to capture the emotional state of the characters and to imagine how it works through their revealing postures. By the contrast of colors, the choice of prints, the movement of drapes, the bed has its own language, it becomes an allegorical setting. Love me tender, a series of photographs to question one's relationship to others, one's view of others and to observe that the best and the worst can arise where we least expect it.
Love can appear in various ways
plural, solo, very young or sometimes even without sex
It can start like a dream and turn into a nightmare
Brigitte Giraud, writer • Goncourt Prize 2022 :
"I like the strength of Anne Kuhn, she gives it to me. I like the breadth of her gesture and her radicalism. I love what her photos say about beauty. Embodied in autumn colors. In ornate patterns, satin, softness, all these materials of consolation."
No one was mistreated during this photo shoot.
