Latent: A hidden history has been produced by artist Sam Vale to mark the fiftieth anniversary of the decriminalisation of homosexuality. The project re-purposes pictures from the South East Archive of Seaside Photography taken during the period of time when homosexuality was illegal and reframes them to invent new versions of forgotten stories. Obscured and beyond focus, these re-worked photographs act as a tribute, remembering relationships that could not be recorded or lived in the open; narratives that can only be imagined, lost to history.
