Couples: Speaking from the Heart

Mariana Cook


Chronicle Books, San Francisco

"In Couples, photographer Mariana Cook presents a stunning collection of black and white images and intimate texts from 60 different couples—young, old, rich, poor, gay, straight, famous, unknown—offering us a rare glimpse into the diverse meanings of that unique bond. These partners speak in their own words, and yet it is in the glance of the eye, the subtle gesture that the unspoken emotions are expressed in these deceptively simple and honest portraits. In both text and image, Couples is a powerful and moving celebration of not only love, but life, and all of the beauty and magic that is shared by the union of two people."
