It’s Not How Couples Meet That’s Fascinating, But Why They Stay Together
When photo editor Stacey Baker asked photographer Alec Soth to do a project on how couples meet, he said he’d help on one condition: that she try to meet someone herself. Stacey complied and went to the largest speed-dating event in the country. They then went to the largest retirement community in the country, where they discovered something interesting—how people stay with each other is even more fascinating than how they find each other. Featuring Soth’s expert photography, this charming talk weaves a thread through how couples go from meeting to creating a whole life together.
