Kissy, Kissy

One of the most famous photographs ever published by LIFE was Alfred Eisenstaedt's V-J day in Times Square. Eisenstaedt shot this celebrated photograph in Times Square on August 14, 1945, the day Japan surrendered, effectively ending World War II. The image was published a week later in LIFE magazine among many photographs of celebrations around the country that were presented in a twelve-page section called Victory.
