BUZZWORTHY // “KISS” by Maggie West

kissmaggiwest

KISS is the debut art book from Los Angeles-based photographer Maggie West. The book features 20 pairs of people kissing each other under colorful, surreal lighting. KISS takes a unique, abstract approach to a subject that has depicted throughout centuries of art. By placing a universal activity in such a dreamlike setting, the book causes readers to reexamine the energy and intimacy taking place with each embrace. The book features a foreword by artist and journalist Hannah Stouffer.
