BOB DYLAN AND JOAN BAEZ | 1975 

When they first met in 1962 Bob Dylan was very young and totally new on the music scene. They fell in love in a second. Joan invited him to join her concerts which contributed to enhance Dylan’s success. It is Dylan who first came with politics in the music. After they split, Dylan became a star in the folk music, whereas Baez got more involved in politics and fight against Vietnam War. This photograph was apparently taken during Dylan’s Tour accross the USA in 1975.

I can’t resist to add a few more pictures. Their romance hardly lasted 3 years but they were just the coolest couple ever!

UNDERWATER KISS & OTHER HUGS | RYAN MCGINLEY 

 

Ryan McGinley is the official photographer of American youth running naked in nature. His work is all about portraits, at the begginning of his buddies in NYC, and then while going around for trips accross the country. In my opinion, his pictures have become a symbol of freedom, youth, and some kind of eternal beauty and simplicity.

LARA GASPAROTTO | 2010 / 2012 

 

Lara Gasparotto is a young photographer based in Liège, Belgium. Not all images below feature kisses, but these are way too beautiful not to show. Let’s just pretend there is a man kissing water and a blood kiss in a bath.

Thanks Séverine for this suggestion.

KISSTERVIEW: SARA | ITALIAN | FIRST KISS AT AGE15 

My first kiss was… funny.
When we were young my sister and I were always wondering how it was to kiss, so we organised rehearsals with a teddy bear. We both trained kissing the teddy bear and made comments like it was a scientific research. So then, when I kissed a boy for the first time, I couldn’t help but think about the teddybear and it made me smile.

It was at a party during our summer vacation, with a 21 year old boy that I had already met quite a few times. It was nice and fun, I really liked it. It was very emotional, I had strong feelings, as I still have now when I kiss someone. And I would like it to stay that way forever.

LAURA PANNACK | YOUNG LOVE | 2009 

Laura Pannack is a young British portait photographer. This particular series entitled “Young Love” shows teenagers kissing and hugging.

“I think we often have quite a pessimistic notion of young relationships and forget that sometimes the simplicity of young love can form very strong relationships. Our ‘first love’ is a relationship we never forget and can act as a template for future behaviour and expectations in the future. A relationship free of worry, responsibility, experience and future plans can ultimately lead to one of fun and intimacy.”

KISSTERVIEW: JULIE | KOREAN | FIRST KISS AT 16 

It was with my first boyfriend and the feeling was horrible! We were at his parent’s house. I was expecting romance, but my boyfriend didn’t know how to kiss, he was just rolling his tongue. I was like: “what is this?”
But I liked him a lot, his inside, so I stayed with him because kiss didn’t really matter. We were together for two years. My parents knew about him, but of course they never knew about the kissing. In Korea it used to be uncommon to kiss. Maybe in a park, in the dark, but never in public. It becomes more common now.
I still personally think Koreans and Asians in general are horrible kissers!

UNTITLED (KISS) | BERLIN | EVA BESNYÖ | 1931 

Eva Besnyö (1910-2003) was born in Budapest, where she lived until she was 20. She then fled the growing anti-Semite climate to get settled in Berlin, where she began the most wonderful and creative period of her life. She got work as a press photographer and spent her days roaming the city with her camera, searching for new subjects. The picture above was taken in 1931 (she was then 21) by Lake Wannsee, in Berlin.

In 1933 she had to flee, again, away from fascism and took shelter in Amsterdam, where she freely and successfully kept working until may 1940, when the Nederlands got invaded by the Nazi troops. As a Jew, she obviously had to go into hiding underground. After the war, she became more and more involved into the feminist cause, personnally and in her work.

Check retrospective exhibition in Paris, Jeu de Paume Museum, until september 23, 2012.
