Candidate #2–Prelude to a Kiss

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print. We came across this scene in lake Como Italy but the kiss never happened. The young man saw me right after I took this and they waited for us to leave before continuing their “conversation” Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Prelude to a Kiss

This photograph was taken in Como Italy a couple of years ago. It was the trigger that has caused me to look for images like this ever since to create a book of people kissing in public places. There is that moment, before two people kiss when you commit to the fact that it is inevitable. This is one of those moments.

Henri Cartier-Bresson created the concept of the the decisive moment. To capture such a moment is the essence of Photojournalism. I like to think that he would have appreciated this image. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery by clicking here.
