In the 120 photographs in Couples, Shay shows us couples in love - walking, talking, kissing, embracing, dining, arguing - as well as many other pairings, human and non-human, whose relationship he has skillfully crystallized in a single instant of interaction. Inanimate air vents and grain silos, as well as parents and children, siblings, friends, neighbors, famous actors and athletes, unknown passersby, dogs, and livestock. All these rub shoulders - so to speak - in the pages of Couples, sought out by Shay's keen eye and coupled forever by his impertinent camera.

Praise for Art Shay's Photographs "Art Shay is an American original, and his photographs show an eye and an imagination that can look around corners. His photography shakes you up, sets you down gently, pats you on the head, and then kicks you in the ass." -- Roger Ebert "Chicago's Art Shay in many ways is to American photography as Nelson Algren was to American writing: that rare and absolutely necessary citizen who's blessed with a cold eye, a clear head, and a warm heart. What is it about Chicago that keeps giving us men like this?" -- Russell Banks "The backgrounds make me nostalgic for the Chicago of my youth, and the [animal] subjects for a pristine world before the evolution of the opposing thumb." -- David Mamet "I've admired Art Shay's work for almost forty years...[It] continues to be an inspiration to me." -- William Friedkin
