Love – January’s Assignment

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. With all the commercialization of this holiday people tend to be preoccupied with the cards and the candy rather then the reason behind it, which is love. This month we are giving you a reason to focus (pun intended) on Love. How do you visually communicate the emotion of love?


The assignment this month is to show us the LOVE. Explore relationships between subjects, show us your take on iconic imagery, use colors, play with visual metaphors– all communicating love.

1. What challenges did you encounter while working on this assignment?

3. Which photograph is your favorite?
