  • Romance, Love, and a Creep with a Camera

    Admittedly, I’m such a creep when I travel. Since falling in love with Robert Doisneau’s 1950 “Le Baiser De L’Hotel De Ville” in the mid-90’s, I’ve become slightly obsessed with photographing romance and unsuspecting kissing couples. I found these lovers in Amsterdam and Paris while on Passport Required’s April Trip....
  • “If You Don’t Show Up” : Vacationships & Dating Travelers

    “They shoot the white girl first,” were the only words on Tamara’s Tinder profile while she traveled through Europe after an amicable breakup and quitting a 6-year job she hated since orientation.

  • Dedicated To Robert Doisneau

      When I was 18 I saw this photo by Robert Doisneau of two lovers kissing by the Hotel De Ville in Paris: It’s been my favorite photo for years. Just the realness and rawness of it. I want to know who they are, what happened before and what...
