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.

“By combining provocative colorations with intimate moments, the focus of the subjects became a richly surreal fantasy. This method visually separates the models from reality, allowing their feeling and energy to prevail” – Maggie West
