This picture has such a funny story. After this man came home from the war, he was on his way home, so excited, when he grabbed this lady and kissed her. A random photographer saw it and snapped the picture. Everyone at the time was obsessed with this picture, and the man was greatly wanted by movies and newspapers, but they never found him…then he popped up on the news 60 years later. The reason he never revealed his true identity was because he was married, and he didn’t want his wife seeing the picture and getting mad at him for kissing another woman.
This story is almost accurate. this man was kissing every woman he saw on V-J Day, the photographer noticed this and focused on this nurse, and as he hoped he kissed her. he did this because of the contrast of the end photo with her in white. If she wasnt a nurse in white, this wouldnt have happened.
