Excerpt from the Art Shay biography, from the Photosource:
Art has been called "the best photo-journalist Chicago ever produced." His memorable photos bring handsome prices at galleries nationwide.
In 1951 Art began freelancing. Since then, he has produced more than 25,000 photos and a thousand book and magazine covers. He also has done books or annual reports for Ford Motor Company, 3M, Baxter Labs, Motorola, Zenith, National Can and The New York Stock Exchange.
