Amateurs 1920: secret images of licentiousness during the Roaring Twenties 

Alexandre Dupouy


Amateurs 1920: secret images of licentiousness during the Roaring Twenties : Alexandre Dupouy The "decade of illusion" begins on July 14, 1919, Victory Day, and ends on October 24, 1929, the day of the Wall Street stock market crash. 

Ten years of parties, orgies, creations and technical progress that allow a population open to pleasure to acquire cameras. Randomly from old family albums or hidden at the bottom of innocuous covers, we now discover licentious images, the result of the turpitudes of emancipated couples. 

Despite some technical difficulties that remain, many libertines have chosen to spice up their sexuality by showing off. The age and rarity of these shots, the nostalgia for this era that heralded our environment, make eminently sympathetic these precursors defying puritanism and the moral order which are falling more and more into disuse. 


The debauchees of the Roaring Twenties who chant us "Make love, not war " are the true ancestors of the sexual revolution of the 1970s. These rare images that have come down to us remain the unique testimonies of their existence, hidden by our history books, which more commonly relate the customs of war. than love and its intimate practices.
