Just recently professional street photographer Mo Gelber,posted an awesome photo on his Facebook wall featuring a young couple kissing while they were being dragged by police, we referred to the young couple as the modern Bonnie and Clyde, but Mo not just posted the photo to share but as a plea to anyone who can locate these people, why? he need all the people in the picture to signed him a permission so he could use that photo at a competition. Today the names of the young prisoners lover has been revealed, they are Alexis Creque and Russell Murphy.
28-yea-old Alexis Jane Creque born on January 7th, 1984 to John and Cynthia Logan Creque from Pinehurst, NC was the sexy girl in daisy dukes caught kissing her boyfriend 26-year-old Russell Murphy a street artist while they were arrested by NY police for allegedly tagged graffiti outside the Milk & Honey lounge in Manhattan’s Lower East Side on August 16th.
Alexis and Russell aka modern Bonnie and Clyde were rebel kissing scene while on handcuffed were caught with the Canon t2i with 70-200 f4L lens @70mm iso 400 1/1000th sec of the famous street photographer Mo Gelber who in order to use this photo that he called “Last Kiss” at Ron Howard’s Project Imaginat10n contest he needs a signed permission by all the people visible in the photograph, so he posted on Facebook and asked everybody to help him track them down.
The voice spread quickly and soon the girl in the picture contacted Mo. Yes that is Alexis Creque, but what about Russell Murphy her beau? he is still in jail.
I finally found out their identities thanks to Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York.He posted the photo on his very popular photo blog and within 4 hours the girl in the photo contacted me.
I am still trying to get all 4 people in the phot
o to sign a release form so I can submit the photo to a major contest.
My deadline is Saturday at 5pm . I will try as hard as I can to get this done. One problem is that the man in the photo is still in jail.
Also , please dont malign the couple in the photo with negative comments. Even though they have been arrested, it doesnt mean they are bad people. They have not been accused of any serious crimes, they were arrested for writing graffiti .And in my opinion, if it was done for artistic or political reasons it is not a bad thing.
“We knew that we were going to be split up once we got to Central Booking. We had a crazy romance all summer. is like a movie.’ said Alexis Creque.
She refused to reveal the name of beau of 5 months, who still is at a Brooklyn jail under charges of criminal mischief, making graffiti, resisting arrest and possession of graffiti instruments.
Alexis said she won’t singed any permission until Russell gets out of jail.
Does anyone has any additional photo of Alexis BF Russell? I wonder is the Russell we are looking the same Russell Murphy who served as an assistant at the JJC Of Manhattan for street artist Gabriel Specter early this year? So? yes or not?
