The study and interpretation of relationships has been a lifelong passion of Craymer. As a British photographer living in the USA he wanted to explore this favorite subject of his this side of the pond. He has always been attracted to storytelling. He likes to explore the intimacy and connection between couples and seek to portray their love and attraction to one other. He creates these pictures by encouraging his subjects to express themselves in an authentic way. The idea of this new book is to verify that romance is alive and well in America as we head towards the end of this second decade of the 21st century. The photographer could only reach a small number of people but have attempted to reflect a cross section of relationships that include ethnically diverse, multigenerational, and LGBTQ couples. Love and laughter were the uniting qualities in every relationship he explored.
“As a Brit I can say I found that romance reigns supreme in this wonderful land. My book is a celebration of human interaction and what it is to be alive and engaged with another person.” Chris Craymer
