VINTAGE PORTRAITS DEPICT THE LOVE AND PRIDE OF GAY PEOPLE http://bit.ly/1wAalp5

The Invisibles: Vintage Portraits of Love and Pride, published by Rizzoli, is a beautiful depiction of the obvious: homosexual people have been leading the same lives as heterosexuals, as much as possible while still experiencing varying degrees of persecution and prejudice—and turning the camera on themselves, as anyone with a camera does, to depict their own lives. Artist and filmmaker Sébastien Lifshitz collected these photos at yard sales and flea markets, some of which he found in assembled family photo albums. As he explains in his introduction, it was very clear from the albums that the photos inside were indeed depicting a committed romantic relationship and not a friendship, which when seen one at a time, some of the images could easily be.”
