Victor Cobo‘s photo series ‘Remember When You Loved Me’ is a dark look at our emotional selves, a portrait we don’t often see, images that go straight to the heart, are raw and capture the feelings of isolation, loneliness and melancholia. In many of the photos you feel voyeuristic, as if you’ve stumbled unwittingly into a situation you shouldn’t have, a private place in which vulnerable people are opened up in front of your eyes. They’re quite remarkable pictures.
Here’s what Cobo says about the pictures:
This work is about dreams, love and the desire to battle loneliness and isolation from society. I want to capture the horror, emotional tension and hidden beauty that can be found in these individual exiles. Lost souls who crave ever lasting love. When someone’s life is void of this, memories and dreams are held onto the dearest. This series pays homage to these important moments. Memories of longing are held for safe keeping, in which there are visual contrasts between the real and the surreal. It is often this world that borders on fiction that keeps us searching for love and happiness throughout the rest of our lives.
