For her first major project, started two years ago and entitled ‘Lovers’, French photographer Roxy Hervé explores the unity between bodies, shapes and hidden moments. For this project, she gets herself invited into strangers’ homes to photograph lovers in their intimacy; in this case into the homes of East Londoners. The lovers who participate in this project are from diverse backgrounds – different in terms of age, ethnicity, sexuality and forms of relationship. By deciding to shoot any type of lover, Roxy Herve aims to bring unity among and between them. Her imagery presents and shows body shapes that every lover reveals to each other during moments of intimacy. There is nothing pornographic about these artistic photographs; the artist sees that it is more about the positions and merging of whole bodies rather than specific parts.
