FOF #2948 – Loving: A Collection of Photos of Men in Love Transcends Time
“Love is love” became the rally cry of the modern LGBTQ+ movement, declaring that love is universal among all people. But in the past, the love that dared not speak its name found other ways to express itself in photography.
Thankfully, photograph collectors and real life married couple Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell have uncovered thousands of intimate photos of same male sex couples, many of which are featured in their new book: Loving: A Photographic History of Men in Love 1850s-1950s.
Today Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell join us to take a look at these marvelous photographs from their book Loving and untangle the secret codes men had for expressing love and intimacy.
