world kisses

A couple of years ago I started working on images in series. I was going to be traveling to over 20 countries in a couple of months, and I knew I wanted to shoot something that would somehow transcend these border. I didn’t know exactly what it would be really until setting off. I shot a portrait of Russell blowing a kiss…and next thing I knew I had a couple friends/editors saying I should push this further. In the end, this series proved to be so much fun and culturally interesting. Every culture has a different way of “blowing a kiss”…. Tibetans do it so very privately…the Portuguese love love blowing kisses, friends and family….well, you just can’t stop them! Anyways, here’s a small slide show of some of the images as well as some clips where they were published. I hope they put a smile on your face too!





November 29, 2009 - 1:20 pm Jasna Wiedemeier - Dear Holly Wilmeth, my name is Jasna Wiedemeier, I am 18 years old and I have to prepare a skilled work about the theme "kisses in Fine Arts" for school. I found your photografies "world kisses" and was very impressed. It is good to know that all over the world there is one language that everyone understands like these kisses show. Would you be so kind and send me some information about your work, for example where I can find all of the pictures, how this idea came to your mind, and who these pictured people are? Thanking you in anticipation Yours sincerely Jasna Wiedemeier P.S.: Please excuse all my mistakes. I have to exercise myself in English.
