This Candid Photo Series Captures Couples Wrapped Up In Their Love

Post by Guest on Fri Feb 12, 2016 7:23 am

Photographer Mikael Theimer is a self-proclaimed romantic, the kind of guy who falls in love at first sight. 
Theimer, who is originally from Paris but now lives in Montreal, spends his time shooting love-struck people in public for his ongoing photo series, aptly titled "Street Love."

A smooch on the streets of Montreal. 
"Whenever I'm out and see a couple kissing or hugging, I'll try and snap a picture," he told The Huffington Post. 
A tender moment on the metro in Montreal.
"I just like seeing people in love, I find that beautiful and pure," he continued. "For a moment, nothing around them matters. I like to focus on the good within the human race. The more you see of it, the more you want to be a part it."
A sweet embrace in Montreal. 
With the exception of a staged photo in front of Café de la Butte in Paris, below, all of the images are "authentic" street photography, Theimer said. In other words, they're candid shots taken in public places without the subjects' knowledge. On occasion, Theimer will approach the couple afterward to ask if they'd like a copy of the photo. 
A kiss on the hand in Paris. 
The photos were shot both on the streets of Montreal and Paris. His favorite image from the series, below, was taken just one week after the November 13 terrorist attacks on Paris at 3 a.m.
A quiet moment in Paris while the city sleeps. 
"It symbolizes the fact that Paris remains the city of love, even so soon after such terrible events," the photographer explained. 
Below, check out more photos from the "Street Love" series. See some of the artist's other work here and here

Ah I do love a little public display of affection.
I don't know why some people hate it so much.

It's quite ironic that a person so full of anger, abuse, and hate posted this thread.

So do I, where no matter how and if there are bitter people in the world, it shows that not only is love all around but how it can conquer many a heart.

Awwww....nice.

Public displays of affection like the ones captured above are heart warming.
I don't like to see groping in public though....and serious tongues can be a bit embarrassing if you have nowhere else to look, but apart from that, it warms the heart to see genuine affection.
