Match.Com Exhibits Historic Photos Of Love From Magnum Archives On 1,300-Square-Foot Digital Billboard Near Times Square to Celebrate Valentine's Day
 Award-Winning Photographer Alex Majoli Will Add To Exhibit By Capturing
     Real-Time Images Of Couples That Day On The Streets Of New York


  WHAT:, the world's largest online relationship site, and Magnum
         Photos, the famed collective of photojournalists, present a dynamic
         photo exhibit of love and romance displayed on the
         1,300-square-foot digital billboard over New York's Port Authority

         The larger-than-life, outdoor exhibit features dozens of romantic
         images in rotation by legendary photographers, including Henri
         Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt and Eve Arnold, among others. The
         rarely seen iconic photographs reveal the power of love - its joys,
         its complexities, its laughter and tears - among people young and
         old from around the world, including recognizable subjects such as
         Ingrid Bergman, Brigitte Bardot, Ava Gardner and Marilyn Monroe.

         To help bring the exhibit to life on the street, noted Italian
         photographer Alex Majoli, the 2004 National Press Photographers
         Association OPC Photojournalist of the Year and a frequent
         contributor to Vanity Fair, Newsweek and The New York Times, will
         take photographs of couples passing by the exhibit. These couples
         will then be immortalized, as their photographs become part of the
         exhibit in real time. Approximately 1.5 million pedestrians are
         expected to pass by the Port Authority terminal building on
         Valentine's Day.

         After Valentine's Day, the exhibit may be viewed online at
