Love is Strange
Design and layout, image selection, production
A limited edition book, in three formats and paper stocks — featuring a collection of images by Sydney-based photographer Elize Strydom. Love is Strange documents the unwieldy nature of intimate relationships, whilst reminding the audience of their crucial role within each individual's life.
The project is broken up into sections — friendships; romantic relationships and crushes; familial musings. Alongside the images sit two essays — an introduction by Amelia Marshall and a kind of epilogue by the photographer. Images — along with type — intersect and overlay, mimicking the way relationships refuse to exist within clean lines, and the differing formats give the book a sense of pace.
