Élysée spent years capturing iterations of how love may arise. Her approach evinces attention to the dialogue with those she photographs. Breaking the tradition of romanticizing subjects in exotic cultures, going beyond the surface to truthfully connecting people on a meaningful, emotional level.
In the artist's spirit, love is the active nurturing of growth. If we live kindly toward each other, humankind will be united with fewer social issues. This project value our fundamental similarities: loving-kindness happens when we clasp hands with other nations and cultures.
