THE FALL OF IMPERIAL JAPAN
Party time: A sailor kisses a nurse in Times Square, New York City in a shot that went on to become one of the most famous celebration shots from VJ Day (Original picture by by Alfred Eisenstaedt, August 14, 1945)
The original photograph was published a week later in Life magazine among others that similarly depicted the delight at the announcement of the end of WWII.
Dullaway's addition of colour seem to bring out the smiles much more in the background crowd, and arguably heighten the passion shown by the amorous sailor.
Whether rumour that the nurse went on to slap the U.S. serviceman are to be believed or not, Dallaway has certainly brought to life one of the most momentous days in history.
