Iconic Imagery Ideas.
V-J Day in Times Square
Eisenstaedt's most famous photograph is of an American sailor kissing a young woman on August 14 th 1945 in Times Square.
Eisenstaedt went around Times Square with his camera and captured the people coming home from the war, celebrating the victory over Japan. Eisenstaedt's says he would have never taken the photograph if the young woman was wearing dark clothes the reason being that the contrast in this photograph makes the image.
V-J Day in Times square by Alfred Eisenstaedt, was published in Life in 1945 with the caption,In New York's Times Square a white-clad girl clutches her purse and skirt as an uninhibited sailor plants his lips squarely on hers.
The idea I had was to do the same poses with models in different locations, or maybe put a twist on the models and have them wearing different costumes.
The thing I Love about this photograph is that it isn’t posed it was taken by chance in a split second. So I think that element would be nice to bring to the photoshoot that we do. Because in my opinion I think that’s how the best photographs are created.
