Mo Gelber, a New York City photographer who specializes in street photography, took a picture of a couple kissing as they got arrested in August.
Gelber entered his picture, entitled ‘Last Kiss,’ into a photo contest, Project Imaginat10n, sponsored by director Ron Howard. The problem is that the photo wouldn’t be considered in without permission of the couple, even though the picture was taken in public and does not violate privacy laws.
… The NY Daily News reported that the woman is Alexis Creque, who said she was the lookout person while her boyfriend vandalized some walls with graffiti.
Creque said the NY Daily News: ”I was just the look-out. We had a crazy romance all summer. It is like a movie.”
SHE WAS THE LOOK-OUT!
