Valentine's Day


Valentine's Day is a big deal in retail. Every year on February 14, millions of flowers cross the counters of florist stores. The classic is certainly the red rose, it stands for passion and love.


I am concerned with the question of whether these flowers are really given away out of love and passion on Valentine's Day.

  • Does it need a Valentine's Day to prove to a girlfriend or wife that I love her?
  • Wouldn't it be a greater proof of love to give flowers without a Valentine's Day?

In this series, I portrayed men who brought flowers home to their girlfriends or wifes on Valentine's Day.
