Miracle of a kiss: Photographer takes portraits before and after kissing strangers

Categories: Photo project

Photographer Johanna Siring went to a music festival in Roskilde, Denmark in 2017 and made friends with a bunch of strangers. And in a rather curious way - by kissing them.

Joanna Searing simply approached a potential object and asked for permission to photograph it. After that, she talked about the topic of her photo series and asked this person to let her kiss him. The photographer took the second portrait after an intimate moment.

Moreover, Siring allowed her newly-minted models to dominate during the process.

"A kiss excites all the nerve endings on the lips," Syring explained in an interview— "It gives an outlet to dopamine (causes a feeling of pleasure and satisfaction. - Ed.) and the release of oxytocin. A kiss instantly relieves stress and creates a strong emotional bond between two people."

The most interesting thing is that after the kiss, I seemed to feel that I knew these people a little better. I think this feeling can be traced in the second portraits."
