A 24-year-old photographer hopes to find “something real” in the world of social media that she decided to create a project called “Lifeconstruction.” In this project, Marie Hyld pretends to have serious relationships with random strangers.
The strangers who have become Marie’s subjects are actually people she just met moments before taking the photos. The timestamps indicate how long it took for them to know each other before taking the photos. Her project jumpstarted on Tinder where she described how she aimed to meet people and photograph them as couples.
Meet Marie, the photographer who pretends to have serious relationships with strangers and takes photos with them.
The young photographer made it clear that the intention to make the photos public was to encourage others to join her. As a matter of fact, she met her boyfriend on Tinder. She told This Is Insider:
We both still have it and swipe occasionally. It’s a hilarious world.
Marie thinks that we as a humanity lack the “face-to-face time today.”
Despite our efforts to interact with people face to face, we are still never fully present in the moment. She even believes that it is only getting worse, and it is something that social media can largely be blamed for. Ironically, which she admits, her project could not exist without the use of a social media platform.
She explains that, contrary to what others think, she never ever plans her dates in advance.
There were days when she would not have the inspiration or motivation to connect with her “deeper, heartfelt self.” These were also the days when she would feel like “digging all the way” into her own and the stranger’s core.
When asked about how her partner felt towards the project, she said that he has always been supportive of her. She admits, however, that she can sometimes feel shaken when participants tend to cross her limits. Although she is prepared for such situations, she accepts it as it somehow helps her know herself better.

Marie encourages people to “always dare to reach out” when it comes to creating intimacy and depth with others. For her, it is important for individuals to learn to search, find, and fill themselves with something that is real. You can check more of her works here.
Indian Bride Notices Groom Was Balding, Cancels Entire Wedding
That is one hell of a comeback, though.
Marriage is not an easy thing. This is why many couples take years to decide before tying the knot. Apparently, an Indian doctor’s experience says otherwise. He had to literally marry a complete stranger after his first (supposedly) bride left him at the altar. And her reason? Well, he was balding.
Ravi Kumar had to travel more or less 1,000 km from New Delhi to the village of Sugauli in Bihar just to marry a woman he had never ever met. It was his family who arranged the wedding a year in advance, just after the girl’s father stayed at Dr. Kumar’s home three times.
Dr. Kumar's first bride-to-be left him after she found out he was balding.
