Chicago's Nelson Algren. Publisher's Description.
Art Shay gave us a face. Tony Fitzpatrick, Chicago Artist Art Shay is America’s Cartier-Bresson. Thomas Dyja, author of The Third Coast 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. Art’s work is so real it feels like a Madison Street guy tapping me on the forearm.
Chicago’s Nelson Algren is the compilation of hundreds of photos-many recently discovered and published here for the first time-of Nelson Algren over the course of a decade and a deeply moving homage to the writer and his city. Read Algren and you’ll see Shay’s pictures; look at Shay’s photos and you’ll hear Nelson’s words.
