Photo: Mo Gelber
Photographer Mo Gelber snapped this photo of modern day Bonnie and Clyde as they were marched into a Manhattan criminal court last month. Mo entered the photo, titled "Last Kiss" in Canon and director Ron Howard's Project Imagiat10n photo contest and made it to the final rounds, but there's a snag ...
The mystery photo caught the pair stealing their final kiss after a night of mischief.
Gelber launched an all-night search for them after getting a call from the Imaginati10n staff telling his picture was under consideration for the final round and that he needed the couple’s permission.
Early Thursday, Alexis Creque, 28, contacted Gelber, saying she and her boyfriend were the cuffed cuties. “We knew that we were going to be split up once we got to Central Booking,” Creque, 28, told The News explaining the passionate peck and that her boyfriend of five months is still “locked up somewhere in Brooklyn.”
Creque said cops busted her 26-year-old beau on August 15th after he was caught outside the trendy members-only Milk & Honey lounge on the Lower East Side writing on their outside wall.
“He’s a fine artist and does graffiti all over the city. A lot of people know him,” said Creque refusing to share her sweetheart’s identity.
Authorities are charging him in various boroughs for the spree of illegal street art while Creque said she was released because it was her first arrest. “I was just the look-out,” she said. “We had a crazy romance all summer. It is like a movie.”
