Fifteen couples, one leather jacket.

The Kooples have curated a photography exhibition in Melbourne titled Latitudes, Attitudes.

The exhibition presents the work of eight photographers, who captured 15 couples across 14 locations around the world. In each of the shots, the same black leather jacket features.

The jacket travelled to India, Morocco, Mongolia, Japan, Britain, California, Greece and more, with the couples ranging from new lovers to long-wedded companions.

The result is a stunning series of images that captures the diverse and unique language of love around the world.

The exhibition is free and is open to the public for two days in March. You can check out some of the pics above, or head to Melbourne for the full exhibit.
