Photographer Bob Bruhin has spent as much time in LOVE Park as anyone. Since June 2012, he’s been at work on a project called “LOVE in the Afternoon,” online at He takes up to 500 photos each month in the park: of tourists, other photographers, passersby, and the men who hang out near the statue, charging to take tourists’ pictures.

“Shooting [LOVE] over and over has made me love it more,” he said.

LOVE Park, he said, is like no other place in the city. He has a request for its renovation: “You get people from all different parts of the city, all over the world, all mingling and bumping into each other. Whatever happens here, they need to preserve and enhance that.”
