Amsterdam-based photographer Maurice Heesen takes us on a charming journey featuring his creation Loveman. Loveman is portrayed by men at different stages in life, each dressed in a white costume with a red heart emblazoned on the torso, a cape, and a helmet. 

Upon first glance, the photos seem lighthearted and fanciful. According to Heesen however, the series is inspired by heartache and "the difficulty in continuing to listen to your heart and trust it, while it's often proven wrong". Loveman is both superhero and stuntman - representing the courage and daring one must summon to keep believing and pursuing love. 

Vincent van Gogh, my inspiration, once said,
"It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.” 

Are you willing to open yourself to love and be loved?
