40 Photographers From All Over The World Show What “Love” Means To Them

Published 5 years ago

Ask a hundred different people what love means to them and you’ll get a hundred different answers. The truth is that everyone understands it in their own way – and the #Love2019 competition, organized by AGORA images, wanted to see just that.

Photographers from all over the world were asked to share what love means to them and their photos prove that love truly is a universal language. The organizers received over 15,000 submissions and selected a handful of the best ones – check them out in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
