MAKE LOVE, NOT WAR

This iconic ‘kiss’ picture took by the Canadian photographer Richard Lam during the Vancouver riots is already a phenomenon over the world. See the news here.

One cannot see this picture and not remember the couple John Lennon & Yoko Ono protesting and saying: Make love, not war. Very touching!

This photo is also being compared to other historical kisses like Robert Doisneau’s ‘The Kiss’ and Alfred Eisenstadt’s picture of a kissing couple in Times Square on VJ day. Have a great week! ;)
