Photographer Spends 30 Years Capturing Kissing Couples of New York City

Subway, 2010

Mark Weber has spent more than 30 years photographing the streets of New York. Although most of his photos deal with the darker side of life in the Big Apple, like poverty, violence, homelessness and the urban struggle, they also capture some of the more tender moments that make it all worth it.

Over those 30 years of photographing metropolitan life, Weber has captured scores of pictures of loving moments between couples in New York – be they nuzzling, hugging, sneaking in a last kiss before the subway doors close, or locking hands on the sidewalk. The photos stand out from his other images precisely because they capture moments of intimacy and love in an otherwise difficult city.
