Maud Chalard, a French photographer currently working as an art director in Paris, has started a project in which she captures the most intimate moments of couples in hopes of showcasing that love still exists.
Speaking about the project, Chalard told BuzzFeed News, "It came quite naturally. I always loved beautiful analog pictures of love and when I started to try, I couldn't stop."
Chalard, who said she is inspired by folk music and the cinema, said her subjects got involved by getting in touch with her on Facebook.
"For the moment, I'm at the very beginning of my series, so I did not have all the couples I would've liked, people from the LGBT community, elderly couples, etc., but that will come with time," she said.
Each of Chalard's intimate photo sessions lasts about two hours.
During that time, they meet, have a drink, talk, and "tell me their love story," she said.
She added, "It's important to relax before a session because it's not easy to get in the privacy of people we do not know."
