The Invisibles


This volume is a unique collection of photographs of gay couples from 1900 to 1960. While this is a time many now regard as the deeply closeted “dark ages,” these photos show gay couples who were clearly out – some camping it up for the camera while others in loving or clearly domestic poses. These photos were discovered and collected by the author in flea markets and garage sale, the names of the subjects and their photographers lost to time. He was intrigued by the fact that the pictures show couples posed hand in hand, revealing happiness, serenity and a surprising air of freedom so unlike the image of gays suffering in secret or fighting for their rights. This unique collection inspired Sébastien Lifshitz to restore to these nameless couples their voices in his documentary movie The Invisibles for which he was awarded the César Award for Best Documentary in 2013.
