    The Love Project is a collaborative venture with industry taste-makers who were asked to contribute photographs along the broad theme of Love.

    Whether it be a love of self, place, culture, or family, these images represent something close to the heart and soul.

    This Love-inspired print by Leah “Happi” Hamilton is available as an 8×8 fine art archival giclee photographic print, edition of 100.

    “The image I contributed is from my collection of street messages found in 2012 by whom I believe to be the messengers of the world. These strategically placed lyrical poetics across the concrete canvas’ can reach deep inside the viewer and soften what may have become hard, add peace and clarity to one’s chaos or provoke thought that may heal beyond measure.

    Just like love, these messages can entice, excite, and invite one’s heart to explore emotions that set them free. The sprawling inscription “Love Child” somewhat resembles the uninhibited freedom of the messenger who wrote it.”

    “Love for me is a work in progress, Love is a goal we should all pursue in life, its what connects us as humans.
    Love requires me to see the world in a grain of sand, and life and love in everything on this green earth.
    Every human is related good or bad,and they are us. Love holds the key to our happiness.”

    “Love of family, love of one’s sisters and brothers, affirming love of self and community have been subtle but undeniable threads running through much of my creative work since I first picked up a camera as a teenager. As a documentarian, I have always felt compelled to seek out not just the “edgier” moments and portraits amongst people and places where I have lived, but to quietly observe, yet actively engage in making representations resonant with strength, beauty, and hopefully positive vibrations. The image I submitted for the Love Project is a personal, intimate and hopefully evocative affirmation of sibling togetherness, and indeed LOVE, as two brothers glimpse a horizon.”

    “Love is a thing we can never have too much of. It is rare, often misused, misplaced, and taken for granted. It is what we should feel for ourselves so we can teach other to love. Love is selfless, never gets old or dies. Love lives. . . . forever!!”

    “When I think of love pertaining to work, I think of what I would be doing for a living if I did not have to worry about money. For me, the marriage of film and music, combining images with sounds and creating a new art, is my true passion. Music is my love. It’s what gets me through every day.”
