I’m not entirely sure why this series from Canadian photographer Fred Muram fascinates me so much. Maybe it’s because kissing a ceiling isn’t something most us will ever do, yet it’s really not that difficult once you set your mind to it. It’s not a matter of “how” as much as a matter of “why?” And there isn’t really a “why”, which is both exciting and frustrating. I also like how it’s focus is on the study of how unusual it is to see the human body interacting with space this way; despite the implied romance of “kissing” something, we can’t see the people’s faces and so we’re not sure if they’re enjoying this or if it’s simply just happening.
