LOVING

In the spring of 1965 photographer Grey Villlet was given a Life Magazine assignment to photograph the Lovings, an interracial married couple then embroiled in legal tangles after their arrest for miscegenation in Virginia. Grey did not concern himself with those entanglements. He chose, as he did in every essay he ever worked on, to seek out the literal heart of the matter: a love story.
