Naomi Pacific is a Swiss artist based in East London and works in filmmaking, music, and visual arts. “Hackney Kisses” is a series of graffitied photographs. In 2010, photographer Stephen Gill stumbled upon a collection of photographs taken by an anonymous photographer in the 1950s of couples kissing each other on their wedding day in Hackney, often by their three-story wedding cake. He published these photographs in a book called “Hackney Kisses”. 

Naomi Pacific found the book at Broadway Market and has been adding to each photograph, using the juxtaposition of variation and repetition to invigorate the echoed experience of foreverness lived in the one instant of a kiss on a wedding day.
