Amsterdam-based visual artist and photographer Lilia Luganskaia’s practice lies between photography and interdisciplinary installations. In ‘Investigation of Love’ she explores whether photographs can function as proof for such an abstract notion as love. Inspired by the application procedure for a Dutch residence permit, which involved submitting photographs of her relationship with her partner to an anonymous immigration officer for assessment, the book is a visual timeline of a relationship in a collection of objects and images. Pictures display the places the couple visited together and things they did. Although the infatuation with the person is clear, is it enough to prove love?
