We Asked Photographers From All Around The World What ‘Love’ Meant To Them, And Here Are Their Responses (40 Pics)

Love is a complex set of emotions and beliefs, an intense feeling of deep affection and a force of nature that can be found anywhere. It is one of the strongest feelings that we’ll ever know: love means to be deeply committed and connected to someone or something. Family, friends, lovers, pets – love is a bond that two people share.

When it comes to defining what love means, each one of us can have a unique definition. These 50 photographers have shared their unique points of view around ‘Love’ and have been selected as finalists among more than 15,093 submissions in the #Love2019 Photo Contest by AGORA images, a free-to-use photography app that has been awarding the world’s biggest prizes in global photo contests since 2017.

Everyone can now vote for their favorite photo in the app and help the guest judge decide who will be the #Love2019 Hero who will win the prize of $1,000. The winner will be announced on Thursday, 12th September 2019.
