Talk about timing! A photographer outside the Manhattan Criminal Courthouse last month managed to snap a romantic picture of a couple being brought into the courthouse in handcuffs.
Photographer Mo Gelber submitted this photograph entitled “Last Kiss,” in a contest organized by Ron Howard and Canon, but found out he may not be eligible because the people in the photo weren’t identified. Gelber turned to the Internet, and it wasn’t too long after he posted the picture on Facebook that he was able to reach 28-year-old Alexis Creque, the girlfriend in the picture. She explained that she and her boyfriend were in the middle of a graffiti spree and her boyfriend was still in jail, but agreed to allow Gelber to use their likeness as soon as her boyfriend is released.
The photography contest, Project Imagination, reached its submission deadline on Saturday, but the winner is yet to be announced.
What do you think of this photograph, Lovelies?
