Bucharest-based photographer Natalia Mindru, capture the raw, unabashed love between couples in a series titled Iubiri Urbane (translated, it means Urban Love Stories). This is his version of ode to stolen kisses, kept secrets, and unspoken words shared between lovers in a metropolis that rarely stands still enough to notice. In her words “I’ve always felt like love and affection were really important to me”.

“Before arriving at a couple’s home, I know nearly nothing about my subjects. The only prior communication is through social media and, as a result, I approach each session without preconceived notions or expectations. In this way, Iubiri Urbane offers a fresh exploration of love in its many forms: tender, sometimes playful and other times messy, but it always depicts the natural attraction between two people” she says in his Bored Panda page.

Explaining her modus operandi, she continues saying ” I am not trying to convince anybody to be a part of my project. Couples should feel they want to do this, to be comfortable and relaxed with my presence. Once a photo session started, it takes usually two hours, during which we have a drink, talk, and get to know better each other “.

The first volume of the project ” Love Stories ” will be released online by November-December.
