The Marc Alain Hearts Series Creates Love Out of Everyday Objects

If you're tired of giving (or receiving) the usual flowery heart-shaped chocolate boxes and cards to your special someone on anniversaries and Valentine's Day, the Marc Alain Hearts series offers an unusual, but incredibly charming solution. The photographer and mixed-media artist creates heart collages using everyday objects and imagery not traditionally associated with love or romance.

Taking a literal (and almost ironic) approach to the phrase "make love, not war," Alain creates a lovely heart-shaped collage using photographs of explosives, and another of missiles. If you're looking for something a little softer, the Baby Birds collage is incredibly quirky and will definitely put a smile on your loved one's face.

For an incredibly creative and unique change from the standard romantic gifts and cards, check out the Marc Alain Hearts series.
