El beso de la Opera // Opera kiss (by Robert Doisneau, 1950)

“El mundo que trataba de presentar era uno donde pudiera sentirme bien, donde la gente fuese amistosa, donde pudiera encontrar el cariño que deseaba. Mis fotos eran una prueba de que ese mundo podía existir.” – Robert Doisneau.

A pesar de estar rodeados por personas que suben y bajan sin cesar las escaleras que llevan hasta la Ópera de París, a pesar del continuo tráfico que se insinúa al fondo, al pesar del molesto frío, esa pareja disfruta de su unión sin importarle nada de lo que les rodea. Sólo importa la suavidad y humedad del beso. Sólo existe ella y él. Sólo existen ellos.

Aunque hay otra captura más famosa de este momento, he preferido mostrar ésta, pues en mi opinión representa mejor la magia del amor al difuminarse el resto del mundo, cuyas vidas parecen ir a un ritmo distinto de la de los amantes. La fotografía representa, no captura, pues como todos esos besos de 1950, como el célebre “beso en el Ayuntamiento”, no son más que pensadas poses para la revista Life. La serie de fotos hecha para la ocasión se llamaría “Besos” y con ellas Doisneau pasó a la historia.

“The world that I was trying to present was one where I could feel good, where people were friendly, where I could find the love I wanted. My photos were proof that this world could exist.” – Robert Doisneau.

Despite being surrounded by people who constantly go up and down the stairs leading up to the Paris Opera, despite the continuous traffic that suggests the merits, despite the annoying cold, the couple enjoys their union no matter anything surroundings them. Just import the softness and moisture of the kiss. There is only him and her. They exist only.

Although there are other more famous capture of this moment, I preferred to show this one, because in my opinion better represents the magic of love to fade the rest of the world, whose lives seem to be at a different rate from that of the lovers. The photograph is not capturing, for as all those kisses from 1950, as the famous “Kiss at Town Hall,” are only intended poses for Life magazine. The series of pictures made ​​for the occasion called “Kisses” and with them Doisneau went down in history.
