Galerie Freiräume Hallein, 2013
In Christian Streili’s photo project, twenty-eight couples were asked to seat themselves on the red couch and recall the story of how they first met. Each shooting was identical in setup and lighting but differed in its portrayal of the couples. Insight is offered through body language, facial expression and interaction between the couples.
Participants ranged in age from twenty-six to seventy-five and were involved in same or different nationality relationships from countries such as Austria, Germany, USA, Ireland, Canada, Zimbabwe, Australia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
After being interviewed, each couple was asked to describe the beginning of the relationship in one word each. The words are exhibited along with the portraits.
