Since 2001, photographer, poet and writer Sharon Harris has been stalking the streets of Toronto taking photos of the mysterious “I Love You” tags all over the downtown core. Over the last few years she’s accrued dozens of photos. They’ll be up at Dooney’s Cafe for the next few weeks, with a launch tonight from 5-8pm.
The tags have taken over her life. She met her future husband, when she showed him a tag. She’s even finishing a “cultural study” on “I love you.” Torontoist has noticed the tags too and seeing how they’re not related to any music nights, DJ competitions, or daily commuter papers that we know of, applauds the efforts of the mystery tagger and Harris’ dogged pursuit of them.
