“The Kiss”

This graffiti is from a photo taken after a Soviet Union leader, L. Brezhnev, gave a speech. After the speech, the head of East Germany, E. Honecker opened his arms and brought in Brezhnev for a lip lock (apparently this is common among Socialist buddies.) It’s an iconic image I’ve seen before but never knew the story behind. Jesse and I tried to recreate it.
