the greatest kiss

Taken by Getty Photographer Rich Lam during the recent riots in Vancouver Canada.
Lam writes in this statement to Esquire:

“I noticed in the space behind the line of police that two people were laying in the street with the riot police and a raging fire just beyond them. I knew I had captured a ‘moment’ when I snapped the still forms against the backdrop of such chaos but it wasn’t until later when I returned to the rink to file my photos that my editor pointed out that the two people were not hurt, but kissing.”
