This iconic photo was taken by Alfred Eisenstaedt on Aug. 14, 1945, known as V-J Day, the day Japan surrendered to the United States, as people spilled into the New York City streets from restaurants, bars & movie theaters, celebrating the news.

The photograph was published a week later in Life magazine, with controversy over it for many years afterward. #photography
