A Valentine’s Day Flashback to PATRICK McMULLAN’s Photography Book KISS KISS

February 2011

“The kiss can be comic or serious, romantic and flattering… but Patrick has seen them all… an artist with his camera and almost no kiss is out of bounds for Patrick.” – Liz Smith, from the introduction to KISS KISS

Photographer Patrick McMullan’s book, KISS KISS, is a 304-page compilation of over 1,000 black and white and color images of kissing. KISS KISS captures the famous, the infamous, the beautiful, the talented and everyone in between.

KISS KISS opens with an eloquent essay by world-renowned columnist Liz Smith.  A joyful and entertaining book that spans 30 years full of passion and surprise.  KISS KISS is the perfect gift for you and anyone who has ever enjoyed a kiss.

More about what’s in KISS KISS:

A collection of more than 1000 photographs of the quintessential human act—the kiss—a lavish gift book for lovers everywhere A kiss is a language unto itself—hence the powerful emotions readers will feel after viewing the photographs in KISS KISS. An integral theme throughout Patrick McMullan’s long photographic career, his approach is that of a meticulous and ingenious explorer chronicling kisses of all kinds for more than three decades: a kiss stolen backstage at the height of the frenzy of a fashion show; a meet and greet “air kiss” between two grand dames of society; a late-night fleeting moment of passionate intensity; or a gentle kiss on the cheek between old friends—all are documented in Patrick’s inimitable style. As a kiss in itself is impartial to celebrity status, so is KISS KISS.

There are photographs of famous actors, well known New York society figures, and wonderful New York characters that tell the story of relationships on a variety of emotional levels. A kiss comes in many forms—among family, friends, lovers, and rivals—all of which are chronicled in this lavishly illustrated gift book. KISS KISS takes the viewer on an intimate guided tour of all walks of society captured in a way that only Patrick McMullan can—as a welcome friend, not an intruding paparazzo.
