Art Shay Photography
"I've admired Art Shay's work
for almost forty years,...what he mostly does is capture real moments and transform them into visual poetry."
"Art's photos, like me, have the Chicago accent, which may be to say he's telling you the truth. " David Mamet
"Chicago's Art Shay in many ways is to American photography what 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."
