Qu’est-ce que l’amour?


CHIN, Ottawa, Ontario


Love changes all things.

The capacity of beauty to capture the heart is thought by many to be rivalled only by death. Plato saw beauty as the driving force behind human aspiration. The mythical King of Cyprus, Pygmalion, sculpted the woman of his dreams and pleaded with Venus to give her the breath of life. The fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast,” Victor Hugo's masterpiece The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein speak of the landscape of love as a place of sacrifice, redemption and transformation.
