In The Lovers, American photographer Lauren Fleishman combines her color photographs with interviews, where couples together for over five decades talk about their love and relationships. Inspired by the love letters her grandfather wrote to her grandmother during World War II, Fleishman began recording the love stories of other couples who have been together for more than 50 years. Finding the letters set her off on a long journey of research, starting with couples in New York, where she then lived, and continuing throughout the United States and Europe. Couples from diverse backgrounds provide a candid, and often moving, look at the experience of anduring love.
