Hackney Kisses is a series of graffitied photographs of couples kissing on their wedding day in Hackney in the 1950s. Photographer Stephen Gill found the collection of original photographs taken by an anonymous photographer soon after the war when many people had lost their spouses and were re-marrying. Gill published them in a book titled 'Hackney Kisses'.
Naomi found this book on Broadway Market in Hackney and went on to to play with the unique repetition this moment through collage, paints and markers.
Naomi's version of Hackney Kisses was exhibited in The Gallery Cafe in Bethnal Green, London, in December 2018, and in Craving Coffee in Seven Sisters, London, in January 2019.
