Overview

Love is in the air as Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey take on humankind's oldest pastime: kissing. In racy candids, humorous vintage postcards, and snapshots taken on the sly, couples from the Victorian era through the Swinging Sixties smooch, canoodle, neck, and spoon. The collected photographs are sweet, sincere, and saucy, occasionally awkward, and always intriguing: Who took these photos? And what lay in store for these amorous couples after the shutter clicked-true love or just a passing fancy? People Kissing is the perfect gift to share with a sweetheart any day you feel like making a public display of affection.

Reviews

In their latest book, People Kissing, Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey-who describe themselves as artists who collect and archivists who curate -continue their exploration of vintage vernacular photography by examining the act of kissing. Acquiring old photographs and postcards from eBay, garage sales and via donations, Levine and Ramey have previously looked at themes such as fishing and knitting. This compilation stretches back to the late 19th century and documents everything from the light-hearted peck on the cheek to the passionate embrace -- Financial Times
