Wedding Kiss: Photography in the 1950s Uncovered on Ebay

in Photography + Gear


London-based photographer Stephen Gill bought 9,000 negatives on eBay two years ago. He was hoping that those negatives from the 1950s recorded the London’s dazzling street life. And surprisingly, instead, he discovered that those negatives were East Enders kissing wedding photos wherein the unidentified photographer captured those photos in amazing detail using a premium quality medium-format camera. Below are the wedding photographs taken from the book “HACKNEY KISSES” to be published later this year.
