Love – Bert Stern
While thinking about my recent life, I got really deep into understanding love, how people love, how do we receive or provide love and so on. Love between male and female, between friends, between family…. there’s so much to learn and yet I need to understand more so I tried to search for artist who use “love” as a centered theme, which then lead me to the website artsy and found Bert Stern’s photography — Twiggy and Justin, 1967, that attracted my eyeballs right away.
Having a clean and direct style of fashion photography, Bert Stern was one of the leading photographers in America during the 1950s and 1960s;Working at the company of Revlon, his reputation grew in a glimpse and he became and important figure for magazines such as Vouge, where he captures images of celebrities and had once said: “What makes a great model is her need, her desire; and it’s exciting to photograph desire,”

I really love how Bert Stern captures the soul and movement of the figures, these image seems so emotional, and I often felt like they are alive with their unique personality in front of me.
