Photographer Shot Portraits Of Strangers Before And After She Kissed Them

When photographer Johanna Siring attended this year’s Roskilde Festival in Denmark, she befriended a plethora of strangers. Her method? Kissing.

“Kissing sparks all the nerve endings in your lips,” Johanna explains to i-D, “causing a release of dopamine and a surge in oxytocin. It’s an instantaneous stress reliever and creates an immediate emotional bond between two people.”

Johanna, who is Norwegian and based in New York, would approach a potential subject and ask them to pose for her. After snapping the first picture, she would then explain her photo series — asking for permission to kiss them — and photograph their face immediately after performing the consensual, intimate act.
