Whether you are glowing in love or feeling a bit melancholy this Valentine’s Day, you are sure to feel moved by the work of talented young photographer David Talley, including his new work above titled ‘The Love Club’:
There’s no need to allow external factors to become internal struggles. Everyone goes through the idea pictured above at some point in their lives – the difference is whether you lay in the rubble, or build something from the dust.
Talley developed the idea for this image in January while taking an evening walk in the brisk 15-above weather of Detroit, Michigan. Currently, the 20-year-old fine art and portrait photographer is traveling in Uganda working with Wando International to shed light on the day-to-day life of widows and orphans in East Africa. Talley obviously has a big heart to share, and hopefully his work can inspire you this Valentine’s Day.
The behind-the-scenes video below lets you into his world, and finishes with a speed edit of the final image, inspired by Lorde’s song ‘The Love Club.’
Now, enjoy some more of his creative work, then go find someone to hug!
