Love Lock Project by Chris Eayres (User Submission)

 Last year Chris Eayres undertook a personally motivated project to photograph every Love Locks From Millennium to Eternity. A photographic record of every love lock on the Millennium Bridge in London on the 22nd of July 2011. Love locks, also known as love padlocks, are in Europe at least a recent tradition emerging in the early 2000’s where two lovers affix a padlock to a public structure to symbolise their everlasting love. Each lock on the bridge snaps shut to secure and seal an emotion to a location and time, they bind the participants to a physical location and an emotional bond, a part of their biography shared and sealed forever in time and space…or until the bolt cutters come.
