Michael Weinstein visited the Stephen Daiter gallery for Newcity Art and filed a report recommending that readers see the exhibit of Art Shay photographs.
Excerpt, from Weinstein's review of the Art Shay exhibit:
Chicago’s premier photojournalist Art Shay captured a moment in place and time, here in the early 1950s, when the gritty old city still held on, with its bittersweet ironies and brutalities, its harshness, and its anticipations of technology-fueled urbanity.
Shay could also show the seamiest sides—a man, again shot from behind, stands in the Maxwell Street police station, his back drenched in blood as the others go about their business.
The Daiter Gallery show is so popular that it has been extended beyond the original closing date of Feb. 25 and is now open through March 10.
