Connecting with people it’s amazing. You never know what someone is going through, their perspective, or their background. There are lots of ways on how to befriend people. However, photographer Johanna Siring has chosen an unusual method by kissing strangers.
When Siring attended this year’s Roskilde Festival in Denmark she approached strangers and told them about the project she was working on. The photographer wanted to capture images of strangers before and after kissing them. If people were on board with her idea, they would share a kiss. Therefore, she named this project the Kiss of a Stranger.
The ‘after’ images show a pure reaction of strangers towards her approach. Some people would go to a quick little kiss, while the rest would go for an intimate make-out. The images after the kiss reflect a warmness that looks like the subject and the photographer created a special bond together.
Siring spent 2 days creating the series, culminating in a collection of 20 black-and-white photos. Her overall portfolio is quite rich with images of people, famous or unfamiliar. Siring believes that every person on this planet has a unique character and personality- there is always a new story to tell.
