When Flame Introductions went from being London based to UK wide, we launched a blog offering our tips for keeping long distance love alive. In it we recommended that lovers grappling with geography plan together, communicate regularly and involve one another in the minutiae of their daily lives.
To add to the connection, the pair takes their half of the photograph at exactly the same moment in time, creating a shared experience in spite of not being together.
“I stand before you after a walk. We gaze at each other and share the same feeling at the same time but from a different place. I miss you,” writes Danbi on the caption for the image at the top of this page, offering a glimpse into how the project is making the distance in their relationship more bearable. “I miss the feeling of holding on to your hand. I reach forward to touch the light. Will you feel what I am feeling?,” he says in another, which depicts a collage of the pair’s hands in their separate environments.
We’re blown away by the cleverness of the images, and the message beneath: that true love really can conquer all – geography included.
