A Moving Photo Series That Features Women In Their Ex-Lovers’ Clothes

Los Angeles-based photographer Carla Richmond has teamed up with writer Hanne Steen to produce a bittersweet photo series featuring women in their ex-lovers’ clothes.

Titled ‘Lovers' Shirts’, the creators hope to explore the “feelings of attachment, security, ownership, identity, and intimacy” that the clothes evoke.

In order to bring out a more emotional side to the photographs, Richmond and Steen spoke to the women about their past relationships and captured their reactions in the portraits.

Steen also took their responses and turned it into poems to accompany the photos. The poems can be found here.
