This Book is dedicated to LOVE!

The stylized Heart is a cross cultural world symbol that has been associated with Love since ancient times. It is seen all over the natural world and incorporated into man-made objects as a reminder of Love, to Love, to be in Love, to be Love…

I began taking photos of hearts while traveling and performing in different cities and countries over 20 years ago. I was inspired because my muse was born on Valentine’s Day. I carried my camera with me always, grabbing it as soon as I walked off stage and with sweat still on my brow, I would start taking photos. And it didn’t stop there, I took it out on the streets too.

The HeArt project began with a heavy traditional film camera that I had strapped to my body. Some photos in this book were shot with it using black & white and color film before digital cameras existed. Now with camera phones, it makes it easy to photograph hearts on the go.

I have included some special quotes from the great Persian poet Rumi; I feel deeply connected to his passages on love.

It’s so exciting to see this project grow over time and since hearts keep showing up everywhere in my life, I will definitely continue to photograph and share them. I hope you enjoy HEARTS 1 as much as I enjoyed creating it!
