Canon #FirstHugs The first hugs of Happiness

Ad Agency
Image advertising:

Lieve Blancquaert, Canon ambassador for many years, looked very much at the photo series of these first 'encounters' and placed an allure because everyone missed someone in these corona times. The images - and especially the emotions during the making of the images - speak for themselves. Images of real first hugs between people after 12 weeks of lockdown. Between lovers. Friends. Grandparents and grandchildren. Brothers and sisters. The images will be released sparsely on Canon's social media channels and later also in public space.
