Since 2013, Ruvan Wijesooriya has invited hundreds of New Yorkers to assist him in turning the underground subway tunnel at 14th St and 6th Ave in Manhattan into a public underground art installation; #LoveTunnelNYC for Valentine's Day.
Love Tunnel is a celebration of the existence of love for everyone and anyone. The images capture moments of love — Ruvan has taken thousands of pictures of people kissing over the last ten years on 35mm black and white film. Within the kisses, there are also a number of pictures of bunnies, puppies, rainbows and flowers to further play with the idea of what Valentine’s Day has come to represent.
If you’re in New York for Valentine’s Day you know where to find love!
