#NotYourCliche Love Letters: Visualising Modern Romance

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Fed up of seeing the same images every Valentines Day? To wrap up our Valentines Mission our editors picked some of their visual highlights!

If pictures tell a thousand words, then who would be the special person you would want to share yours with?

There’s no better time to shake up the cliché, so taking the traditional love letter, we asked our you to share your heartfelt messages through photography.

Every love story is different and we fell in love with the visual declarations we got to see.

Whether it be addressed to partners, families or some selflove, the love letters submitted for our recent Mission showcased the real and authentic love we experience everyday. Take a look here at our teams favourites.
