Laura Stevens – Us Alone

This series of couples in their home examines moments of tension and struggle between men and women who cohabit.

These photographs are a departure from the traditional image of the happy, loving couple within vernacular photography and instead address the hidden, melancholy moments of coexistence. I wanted to explore the disparity between each partner striving for personal freedom and identity, alongside the need to act as part of a whole in creating a shared and unified reality. I photographed real couples within their own homes performing in a collaborative attempt to render visible the twofold existence of a partner.
