Endings: Photographic Stories of Love, Loss, Heartbreak, and Beginning Again

Jessica Ennis, Caitlin Cronenberg

Canada’s The Globe and Mail’s Bestseller!
Featuring some of today’s most beloved actors, these piercing photographic vignettes capture female characters in the throes of powerful emotional transformations. Photographer Caitlin Cronenberg and art director Jessica Ennis collected stories of heartbreak, relationship endings, and new beginnings—fictional but often inspired by real life—and set out to convey the raw emotions that are exposed in those most vulnerable of states.
Collaborating with celebrated stars, Cronenberg and Ennis developed each character, built her world, and then photographed as she lived the role before the camera. The resulting collection is a bold look at the experience of losing or leaving love and will speak to anyone who appreciates art, photography, and the strength of facing emotional depths head-on.
Featured talent in the book includes:
– Julianne Moore
– Keira Knightley
– Gugu Mbatha-Raw
– Sofia Boutella
– Nina Dobrev
– Tessa Thompson
and many more!

“Their book, The Endings: Photographic Stories Of Love, Loss, Heartbreak, And Beginning Again (Chronicle Books, £21.99), explores different narratives of this through striking photos. ‘These images tell stories of sadness, loneliness, anger, relief, rebirth, freedom and happiness. They are explorations into raw emotions, looking at female characters at a crossroads, and how they move forward (or don’t) after heartbreak,’ say the authors. ‘The stories are about relationship endings, but they are also about beginnings. They capture the journey of moving on. Starting again. These are the stories we set out to tell.’ Moving and beautiful.” Psychologies

“In her new book The Endings, photographer Caitlin Cronenberg, in collaboration with stylist Jessica Ennis and a handful of some of the most lauded and talented actresses in the UK and the US, asks what a broken heart looks like.” The Glasgow Herald
