Summary
"In Album for an Age, Mr. Shay puts both his words and his pictures to work. The result is a delightful, entertaining, thoughtful, and sometimes wacky sightseeing tour of many of the major personalities and events of the last fifty years. "Daumier," he writes, "taught me to aim my predatory camera at the contumely, snobbery, pretensions, cruelty, and machinery of petty power." Some of it, though, he can't help liking; all of it he writes about with wit and insight. Here is a marvelously unconventional book by an unconventional photographer - not a picture book but a book with pictures."--Jacket
