Affectionate Men assembles daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, tintypes, cates-des-vistes, cabinet cards, and ordinary Kodak prints, from all parts of the world, forming an idiosyncratic record of the affection between men.

Russell Bush started with one nineteenth-century tintype that he found while browsing at a flea market in Pennsylvania. It sparked his interest and led him to search for similar images, producing a growing collection that now contains more than 250 images.

The earliest daguerreotype in the book was made in France in 1826 -- an image frozen in time long before the invention of the automobile, telephone, radio, or airplane. Over a period of one hundred years, we can see the changing styles in clothes, hair, and attitudes, but what remains constant is the expression of affection and love between these men. Some may be gay, others assuredly not, but whatever the relationship, these images celebrate Whitman's "dear love of comrades".
