From the post at PDN Photo of the Day:
Six years ago, John Arsenault started making the images in his new book For You! Modern Day Love Letters as visual tributes to his partner, Raf, who is now his husband. Shot with an iPhone and posted on Instagram with the caption “For You!” the images were a secret message at a time when their relationship was new and private. But as Arsenault writes in the introduction to the book, published this week by Daylight Books, eventually he switched to a 35 mm digital camera and “slowly these flowers have become a gift for everyone: For You!” The result is a collection of roses, seen up close or in small bouquets set in plastic water bottles or elaborate vases, which act as love poems of a sort, depicting a subject with a long and glorious association with romance.
