"New York is the first city where I've collected 100 different kisses. My models are ordinary people on the street and I find that I'm attracted to the special connection they have with each other. Sometimes friends would decide to kiss just for the sake of this project. Kissing improves our day. In some photos, the setting is also very important: for example, in Japan, two people I photographed kissed in front of the only building left intact after the bombing Hiroshima." Ignacio Lehman.
