People Kissing: A Century of Photographs
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.
Barbara Levine and Paige Ramey are collectors, artists, and curators specializing
in vernacular photography and offbeat collections. They run Project B, a found photo archive and curatorial services company. They live in Houston, Texas, and
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
