Michael Oliver Love is a South African photographer living in Cape Town. He is also the Founder of Pansy Magazine – an online menswear publication that dismantles the preconceived categories of masculinity and femininity, creating a space for free and unaffected expression. Love’s images provide an outburst of colour, texture and energy. Faces pop out from cut-out paper; blocks are painted onto cheeks; oranges are thrown into the air; groups of people cross an undulating red rock. These pictures complement and enhance one another as a celebration of movement and community – forms expanding fluidly across the page. Each composition demonstrates a return to simplicity, favouring primary colours and experimentation with irregular shapes. Blues, reds and yellows appear like punctuation marks within a new and exciting visual vocabulary. Love is represented by Hero Creative Management. pansymag.com | instagram.com/michaeloliverlove.
