ilovehatephotography is an online magazine dedicated to bringing high quality original content in the art and craft of photography. We are proud to feature and showcase works from talented photographers. We are run by an international team of enthusiastic photographers, exploring the dichotomy of the art with the camera as our paintbrush.
Why do we love and hate photography? Often times, capturing the moment requires us to not be a part of it. As Annie Leibovitz puts it: “The camera makes you forget you’re there. It’s not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.” Yet, capturing slices of life through a lens opens up new and unexpected perspectives. After all, some of the best relationships in life are love hate relationships.
