Love is the driving force of creation. Not only is this true when there is a sufficient amount of love, longing for love and experiencing love lost also evoke various emotions that become the source for people's expressions. What connects all of these forms of expression is the fundamental question of what love is. In addition, the form of media called photography has continued to inspire many viewers by capturing the ephemeral nature of the present, which is always changing. In Japan, sharing private incidents and their reality with others has been a proposition of photography, as there was a genre called private photography. In addition to straight photographs for which family members, lovers, and friends are the subject, photographs that humorously capture love can also be expected.
