If you spend any time on social media, you’re going to be barraged with couples photos. While some people seem to have nothing better to do than plaster their love all over the Internet, artists Leta Sobierajski and Wade Jeffree have chosen a different way to celebrate relationships. The Compliments Project is a series jabbing at couples photography through outrageously staged images. The ongoing work is at times silly, sloppy and often downright weird. Sobierajski and Jeffree cite lovebird photography from the internet as inspiration, but also 80s portraiture and “homages to great imagery of couples throughout history”. Whether sharing a banana or eye balls, this particular brand of bizarre PDA is one we aren’t sorry to see.
