Why does the sunflower follow the sun?
Why do we do things for the ones we love?
What's worth living for and what's worth dying for?
The answer is only one: love.
In the midst of so many flowers I chose you. In the midst of so much love I chose your love.
And at night the sun still comes to see me through the aurora borealis. By day its heat, by night it shows its beauty in the aurora borealis.
For me, the sunflower is the symbol of love, which in turn brings abundance in all aspects of life, which is why the “I love you” in the frame comes from the middle of this field of sunflowers. And so, like sunflowers, it's worth following love, as they follow the sun.
This work was one of the first to travel across the continent, and was made with great care for the couple to always renew their love. I always wish the best feelings illuminating the couple's path.
Much love is hidden in a field of sunflowers.
