Sebastian Lizshift was traveling around the world collecting the most amazing vintage photographs that you have ever seen. Soon, he stumbled upon the photographs of gay couples in the mid 20th century.
He was shocked by the boldness of the photographs, as to come out loud during that time was very tough. As it was more hidden and less accepted at that time.
He also created a documentary on the gay couples who were born in between the two world wars. It is called Les Invisibles.
These vintage photographs speak so much more than words can ever say. Have a look.
