Wartime kisses

Hi everybody.

For some reason I have always had a love for old photographs. Of course because of the clothing and style of those days, but there is something about the shades of black and white, the decoloration, the beautiful edges the prints have… It just makes my heart beat fast. So I would love to share some photo’s with you that I just can’t stop looking at.

In such a sad and often hopeless time, with an unsure future, people were captured in a moment of love, forgetting the world around them, only living for this moment, for each other. Holding on until the very last second, until the train leaves and they don’t know when and if they will see each other again. Alfred Eisenstaedt, the man behind the most famous ‘wartime kiss’ the soldier kissing a nurse on Times Square, NY, has made a lot of these beautiful photo’s.
