When photographer Ben Lamberty was walking down the street last summer, he saw a couple kissing and took a spontaneous picture of them. He liked the shot so much he decided to make a series of similar photos. Ben asked his friends to pose as models for his project.
Some of them were real couples while others were just good friends. According to the photographer, the “real” couples found it more challenging to show their feelings in front of the camera than friends who kissed just for fun. The photographer deliberately chose not to disclose whether the couples in the photos were real or not.
