All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love

All You Need Is Love was a family public art action for Valentine’s Day 2013. I created the text banner from red card stock, a hole punch, and a roll of twine. I gathered my small family and headed to a public picnic area in Tilden Park in the Oakland Hills. We hung the banner, set-up the tripod, and staged the photo shoot just before sunset. Tempted to leave the banner as declaration– we decided to take it back down for fear it might tear in the wind and ultimately become “litter” in one of our favorite public parks. Also, I’d love to use this banner to photograph additional families in the future.
