On Kissing..On Loving...

In Public..


My first picture of this project, I took in Koln, Germany. It's not in this collection. I thought it wasn't good enough. I took it instinctively. I remember I was talking to someone on the street and there was the picture..My eyes steered towards the couple kissing a few meters from where I stood. I raised my camera and started to take pictures. But then, the couple (who didn't really notice me) started to walk away from where I was. I run after them! I did not get my picture. Oh well, the picture I wanted, in my mind.....

In New York 2002, while walking, I saw a couple taking pictures of themselves. They were locked in a loving embrace. I was standing in front of them, smiling..

I offered to take their picture using their camera.

But i made a deal, I said, I will really make good pictures of them, but if it's okay with them, I will also make pictures using my camera..They agreed!

Why do I have this kissing pictures project?

hmmm...It is something i rarely see here in my country.

public displays of affection like kissing is not so acceptable.

so when I saw the couple kissing in Germany, instinctively, I wanted to photograph it..

Here begins my attraction, my constant hunt for kissing..loving pictures.

I didn't really plan a project about it..then again, while looking through the slides, archives I found some ..quite interesting I thought.

I may have more, but I need to unearth them from piles of slides and negatives.
