I collect found photos. This one was in a bin at a cool thrift store called Qcumbers. I was awed by the passion in this couple’s kiss– it feels both aggressive and touching. We think of our grandparents’ generation was boring and conservative, but they too were young once and had lives with love, passion, drama, pain, etc. I estimate that this photo is at least 50 years old, based on the film format in this contact print on platinum paper.

Now I know why the older teachers at my school called it “sucking face.” Either that or he’s giving her mouth-to-mouth.
