First Kiss is a video project directed by Tatia Pilieva. The objective of the project was to record 20 complete strangers engaging in their first kiss.
The short video turns out to be more than just a grab at YouTube hits. The video is in Black & White that doesn’t distract from the emotions and body language of the couples as a color medium would. The awkwardness of the couples adds an aura of innocence to the sexuality of the moment.
I found it intriguing to watch perfect strangers exchange an intimate kiss. A kiss can calm down giddy nervousness while at the same time setting off fireworks.
