The Makeout Project By Jedediah Johnson
- Caroline Kurze
Photographer Jedediah Johnson seems to be a pretty impetuous kisser judged by his series ‘The Makeout Project’. For the images, he puts on red lipstick to kiss people and photograph them afterwards. His kissing buddies seem rather overwhelmed by the sudden affection.
Jedediah Johnson states: “The images are an invitation to the viewer to build their own narrative of the kiss. In this project I question the nature of intimacy, sexuality, and the kiss itself.”
