Love by National Geographic Society

Love is a journey across many cultures and places. It is a voyage that takes us back to the past as well as into the 21st century. Yet very little separates young lovers glowing under Shanghai's futuristic skyline and an Eskimo couple in Greenland posing for the camera a century ago. Pictures span the globe, from Niger where seduction dances are performed by young men, to Kyoto where a modern couple on a scooter races past three geishas in traditional dress, to Rome where a father and daughter share a tender moment in a very public space, St. Peter's Square. The book is divided into four sections, each with a 2,000-word essay, celebrating the different phases and circumstances of love: Yesterday; Public; Private; Tomorrow. Love is a tribute to photography.
