The 2017 Love Letters Exhibition: Part 2
– I love how you saved sweet things, like notes, photos, and birth announcements. Your beautiful spirit is always with me.
– Extreme love to my husband Miles Stryker, who takes on the mantle of muse with such grace and doesn’t get “too” angry when we arrive at a location to shoot and I find I’ve left my memory card at home.
– I am continuously drawn to others’ deeply personal place-making, often expressed with quirky collections of artifacts. I think of these sites I stumble across as loving shrines.
– I love the way her smile is the brightest at the most insignificant moments–like every little thing we do is worth a special smile. I love her so much–she deserves to smile more.
– A friend of mine recently left the commercial printing manufacturer we both work for. I feel his loss because he’s the kind of guy who wants things to be beautiful, even when they’re caked in dust, oil and ink.
– When I see another mother and child, it brings back a flood of memories of when I held you, my daughter, in my arms and the strong desire to always protect you.
– Dear sweet daughter as you go into the world, know that my love surrounds you like a soft mist. You have everything you need, you are whole and perfect.
– …Dear diary, my beloved JH is still far away and I miss him so. Today I bought a holding hand for all those unbearably endless days and nights, as I keep on anticipating the moment we will see each other again…
– A photographic love letter to skating and the world it opens up.
This is not the end.
– This photo will always remind me of my husband, who was with me in his cousin’s garden. The two heart-shaped chairs are our love and life together.
– Shine on, you crazy diamond
– My loving husband whom I embrace and love as he is.
– Dear New One who is a good antidote to troubling world happenings. We are glad to meet you.
– Without you, I questioned my strength. Without you, I found myself.
– Loving you has been a journey of transformation for me, you have taught me to be comfortable in my own skin and I can be myself when I am with you. Thank you for always being there to support and encourage me in anything that I do.
– Dear Fionn, you are still a baby, and people give me evaluations of what you can or cannot do. Know this: I will love you always and no matter what. This is my love letter to you, and it is the first of many.
– Yet my mind wanders ever back to our time at Gilsfjarðarbrekka.
– So thankful for all the good years we are sharing.
– I’m still with John but in few hours we are going to be separated again. Fragments is a story of a chase, a love letter slowly unfolding across the sea.
– I love you because you let me go out to sea, even when you’re rooted to the land.
– You told me ‘I love you more than I have ever loved’. My work and my life have been devoted to understanding love ever since.
– Dear Edgar,
I am sorry to wake you from your beautiful sleep. It’s time for guitar.
I have a warm t-shirt for you- just out of the dryer.
– With all of my love for your beginning, please accept this gift of love, two bodies and one soul.
– You never fail to surprise or amaze, or amuse. Lucky me.
– Saudosamente recordo uma gentil companheira que na minha vida inteira eu nunca vi…mas recordo a sua boca doirada e o seu corpo esmaecido, em un halito perdido que vem na tarde doirada. Mario de Sa-Carneiro
– Dear Earth, I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you.
– Beauty Can Come From The Darkest Places and Bring Light Into Your Lost Soul.
-To Alex, You’re my Best Friend and my Love! xo
–To my wonderful husband, thank you for being the best partner in this thing called life
