Product info

Loving: A Photographic History of Men in Love, 1850-1950 is a visual tribute to the history of romantic love between men. Found hidden in shoe boxes, old suitcases, family archives and at flea markets, this moving collection of photographs was gathered over the span of two decades by married couple Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell. Offering an intimate glimpse into the romantic lives of couples from the past as well as a fascinating look at the development of photography, you’ll find within these pages countless ambrotypes, daguerreotypes, glass negatives, tin types, cabinet cards, photo postcards, photo strips, photomatics and snapshots depicting portraits and group shots taken all over the world in a variety of contexts. While the identities and stories of these subjects have been lost to time, they are all easily identifiable as couples by their body language and that unmistakable look in the eyes of two people in love, as well as by handwritten inscriptions, often coded. Taken when same-sex relationships were sadly illegal in most places, each snapshot is an act of bravery and resiliency, yet also filled with sweet moments of joy, hope and tenderness. A delightful and heartwarming addition to any coffee table, this book is a beautiful homage to our universal longing for the shared truths of love.
