Introduction: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f3 – freiraum für fotografie, in Conversation with Davor and Andela Rostuhar.

What is it actually, the thing we call love? What does it mean to us? Does love make it possible for us to overcome differences which divide us? Is love the most beautiful feeling in the world or is it a mere construct? Does love mean everlasting attachment, the fulfilment of material needs, time spent together, submission, protection – or does it mean disappointment, perhaps?

Croatian photographer Davor Rostuhar proposed to the love of his life, Andela, whilst on an expedition to Antarctica. Together, the adventurous couple decided not to embark on a romantic honeymoon, but instead to travel around the world for a year to explore the phenomenon of love. On five continents and in 30 countries they conducted 120 interviews. They met people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, and travelled to both, big cities and the countryside. They visited remote tribes in the Amazon and nomads in the desert, spent time high up in the mountains and on South Sea Islands. They spoke with people who live together in all manner of different living arrangements, and ranging in age from five to 90. They asked all of them the same question: What is love, anyway? 

In Love Around the World, people from all over the world give fascinating, intimate glimpses into their lives and show what relationships mean to people in different cultures.
