Shortlist, Agony of Love by Adrian Markis
"Agony of Love is a photo series about the last moments two lovers, or a married couple, live in their home. These people still love each other, but they are suffering a crisis caused by years of living together. The series features several cinematic compositions, each one composed to create a narrative experience. The viewer is introduced to a couple on the verge of separation. It’s a close-up, intimate portrait where the characters face a major life obstacle. This series was inspired by the painter Edward Hopper and the photographer Gregory Crewdson."
