Over the last seven years, my partner (and brother) Eugene and I have had the privilege of both curating and writing about touching stories of ordinary people performing extraordinary acts in the name of love. From parents to children, husbands to wives and even pet owners to pets, we came across profound stories that were both visually stunning and deeply meaningful. I’m excited to announce that we’ve now captured our top 25 photo stories for a new book, which has been published by Chronicle. It is now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie Bound. The official release date is March 15, 2016.
From Batkid saving the city of San Francisco to a husband that wore a pink tutu all over the country to bring a smile to his cancer-stricken wife, these heartwarming photographs will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you believe in the power of love.
Below is just an example of some of the stories you’ll find in the book. Within its pages, you’ll find more personal essays (than what you’ll find in the links) because we’ve added original quotes from each photographer. If you’re a fan of My Modern Met, and all the amazing photo stories we’ve featured over the years, you’ll definitely want to buy this book for you or your friends.
