Across a global landscape dominated by fear, cynicism, and distrust, The Smooch! Project is determined to slow things down and let a little love creep in. It’s hard to stay mad when you’re watching two free spirits smooching. It’s about love. It’s about community. It’s about healing. But most of all, it’s about sharing this uplifting act of togetherness with an online audience of millions. So that’s our mission, to bring a little happiness and understanding to a grumpy world – one smooch at a time.
We’re committed to creating an online archive of 10,000 exhibition-quality images of people throughout the world, regardless of social, ethnic, economic or political differences, as they demonstrate a tender regard for their spouse, significant other, youngster, elder, pet or even a prized possession. We’re actively seeking new opportunities to collect images, both throughout the United States as well as internationally. Would you like The Smooch! Project to visit your area? Learn more here.
I love and support The Smooch! Project because it is simply art opening up communication — one photo at a time — to bring healing, compassion and community connecting to the world.
