Lip Service: A History of Kissing – In Pictures

The Guardian Article
By Holly Stafford

For the past 25 years, Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey have been collecting amateur photography. Based in Mexico and Texas, the artists have published a number of books together featuring vintage images found at flea markets and on eBay. Their latest is People Kissing: A Century of Photographs (Abrams & Chronicle, £11.99), which charts the evolution of the genre from Victorian postcards to automatic photo booths. Before photography, Levine says, kissing was largely a private affair. “Nowadays it’s a public act. People are encouraged to perform their affection for the camera.”
