With James Moes
AU: Has observing and documenting couples around you changed the ways you approach love?
JM: When I started out, I thought that love photographed ought to be deeply affectionate and close. I wished for all my clients to demonstrate an intimate, touching tenderness. While the images that resulted from this way of thinking were typically beautiful, they weren’t necessarily honest. Now, I do my best to create a generous space for people to reveal their unique ways of interacting. I want to document people loving comfortably and confidently — not trying to perform to a perhaps uncomfortable stereotype.
