Love in all its forms, juicy and luscious as well as deeply hurtful and sad. Chan Wai Kwong’s 2018 photobook “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is a journey into the depths of affection and lust. Playful as ever, Kwong opens with artful visual comparisons of sex and flowers and fruits, before the book takes on a narrative element. Death mingles itself into Kwong’s usually airy and carefree photographs, and the way he handles it is both impressive and affecting. “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” is one of his strongest works to date.
