The Love Portraits are a series of video portraits that show strangers saying I LOVE YOU to the camera. The portraits are moving images of a psyche unfurling into an expansive love. They animate our barriers to love, and our relationship to these very powerful words, words that become mantras, portals, obstacles: the words I love you. Each person reveals a different relationship not only to love, but also the outward expression of it.
