Kissing in Color

IMG_0117The V-J Day photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square at the end of WWII was featured first in Life Magazine. It is a photo that became instantly famous and is still celebrated. While the original photograph was in black and white, this iconic image has been brought to life in color. Bright yellow, green, blue, red, purple, orange and pink all radiates out from the central kissing couple who are also vibrantly painted with the sailor’s hat a striking white. Now, thanks to this artist, the image can continue its life in color.
