Hidden History: Gay Couples from the 1950’s

These photographs were discovered by French screenwriter and director Sebastien Lifshitz in a photo album he found in a thrift shop.  Taken by a gay couple in the 1950’s, they document lives and relationships during a time when most of them were afraid to even take pictures together because of public perception and persecution.

Inspired by these photos, Lifshitz created a documentary called Les Invisibles.
