Dave Heath: A Master of Photographing Solitude – The New York Times

In Dave Heath’s vision, even the smushed faces of young lovers smooching is a picture of loneliness and alienation. The woman’s eyes are slightly open, not meeting the gaze of her partner, whose head is tilted so far their faces misalign. The uncertain promise of intimacy and connection is revealed in a frame made so close one imagines kisser and kissee must have flinched when the shutter clicked.
