The Lovers by Lauren Fleishman is an endearing photo series that was inspired by the American photographer coming across a collection of love letters written from her grandfather to her grandmother during World War II.

The love letters found by Lauren Fleishman focused heavily on the hope and expectations of her grandparents' young love, leading her to her focus for this compelling series. Lauren Fleishman then set out to record the love stories of other long-married couples and The Lovers was born.

Each enchanting photo in the series includes a paragraph from Fleishman's discussions with the couple on love and the nature of long-term romance that make the project even more endearing.

The Lovers series will be published as a book in 2015.
