Ruth Mader’s ‘What is love?’
What is Love - a banal and yet fundamental question that is often the quest of a lifetime. Is love happiness? What does love mean to life? Austrian author Ruth Mader proposes to find the answer(s) through portraits of individuals from different social backgrounds.
Through a camera that is sensitive, discrete, benevolent but sharp at the same time, we are taken into the lives of men and women, young and aged, whilst elements of our own lives are invariably marked and traced.
