Artist Statement:I thought this project was going to be difficult because love is such a vague and wide topic. But I soon became inspired by all of my surroundings and saw that love took shape in so many different forms. My first picture with the rose is very simple and yet powerful. It’s a great symbol of love because it’s a way of showing affection and admiration. Editing it was fairly straightforward, it naturally had a pink hue but I emphasized it more with a pink photo filter. The second picture is Grycel staring at her beloved; food. I wanted to make sure she was in focus compared to the vending machine and I defined that more in photoshop. The last picture is one of my favourites because although it’s grainy, I feel it adds more to the photo and makes it more real. I was able to capture the moment of friendship which I believe is one of the strongest types of love.
