“Something Like Love” by Lydia Panas

BY LYDIA PANAS

My pictures are about who we are as human beings and what we feel, the timeless aspects that do not change. The portraits in this series are about lovethe ambivalence, the ambiguity, and the silences that lie beneath the surface and always have a ripple effect.

These photographs are quiet, with an emotional complexity that feels unsettling and maintains a balance between intensity and restraint. They are like unfinished stories becoming unveiled. In the exposure, I find that I can connect.
