Hundreds Re-Enact Iconic Kiss in Time Square

Hundreds of couples wore sailor hats and nurses' caps and smooched in New York's Time Square on Mondau, August 16, to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the end of World War II. The couples were re-enacting the famous Life magazine photo of a nurse being passionately kissed by a sailor at the end of the war, a photograph popularly known as the V-J Day in Times Square. An eight-meter statue replicating the photo was also erected for the celebration.

    1. Hi there,

      I was wondering where you got the first image from (the re-enacting kiss) with the crowd of people kissing? We want to do something similar here in New Zealand and I would like to use this photo to promote the event. Your help would be much appreciated. Many thanks Myriam
