Kiss and Tell

“The fact is that the secret was actually hidden to the public until the 1980s, when a retired couple named Jean and Denise Lavergne thought they recognized themselves. When they confronted Doisneau, he did not initially refute their claim. Then, seizing the opportunity, the couple sued Doisneau for money for violating their privacy. That lawsuit led Doisneau to finally reveal that the subjects of the photo were actually hired models paid to pose for the photo.” One of the Most Iconic Kissing Photos Was Staged. (After many years on social media, I’m convinced all public displays of affection are staged…)
