Gino and Angie Terranova
Angie: “You don’t really think about getting older. First of all, you’re aging together and when you see a person constantly you don’t notice big changes. You don’t notice, oh, you are getting a little wrinkle here and tomorrow you say it’s a little deeper. Those are things that just happen. I mean, I am not thinking everyday, oh my husband is 83 years old and my goodness I am married to an old man! And I hope he feels that way, too.”
I discovered this project by Lauren Fleishman a few days ago and was immediately intrigued.  Love Ever After shares the love stories of couples who have been married for at least 50 years. Inspired by a letter Lauren’s grandfather wrote to her grandmother during World War II, she began photographing and interviewing in the New York area as a way to preserve their stories and to illuminate our universal experience of love.
She tries to convert this project into an inspiring art book by using the Kickstarter platform. Additional funding will help her to photograph 15-20 more couples and produce a limited edition photo book.
What a lovely project and what a nice idea for a Valentine’s Day gift.
The artist already achieved her funding goal but the more the merrier. Check it out.
