If you could complete the phrase ‘I love you because . . .’ how would you do it? Why do you love who you do? How would you illustrate that actually spelling out the words "I love you because . . . (insert your reason here)" in a photo?
In this heartfelt book 33 people present their photographic answers to these questions. The book features essays by the photographer explaining each person's reason and the personal effect making the image had on him, as well as a portrait of each person. This rich tome explores an emotional landscape as well as a visual one, providing intimate windows into the many different ways love manifests. The objects of people's love runs the gamut from parents to children, lovers to cities, siblings to one's self.
This book makes a great gift for everyone you love and care about in your life. There is even a page for you to create your own "I Love You Because" photo.
