“As we look at these photographs of young people exchanging awkward kisses we are reminded again of that wonderful discomfort that comes with the discovery of young sexuality. Not only do we all remember the feeling of that first clumsy teenage kiss, as mature viewers we can now look at the photos from afar and understand exactly where it’s all going. Teenage Kissers is a perfect documentation of this feeling. The photographs are, in many ways, beyond innocence. They brim with humanity in its most raw form and remind us that although some of us have now grown up, we’re still never so far from that first kiss. The basics of our sexual lives are reflected back to us in these images, and no matter how many times we see it, it cannot be denied that there’s a little “Teenage Kisser” in every one of us.” -Aaron Rose
