Whether your lover is your life partner, your best friend or yourself, summer is the season of love. 

So we thought we'd dig up our favorite photos exploring the complexities of being in a relationship and celebrate the diversity of devotion through the lenses of some of the most talented photographers around.

From Wolfgang Tillman's subversive nudes to Maud Chalard's heartwarming snaps of free-spirited duos in love to Nan Goldin's evocative portraits, it's time to get turned on.
