    Art Shay (b. 1922) is a photographer and writer who has captured and helped define the American experience for the better part of seven decades. He shot pictures regularly for Sports Illustrated, Time, Life, Fortune, the Saturday Evening Post, Forbes, Business Week, Parade and The New York Times Magazine. A Bronx native who now resides in Deerfield, Ill., Shay has photographed seven U.S. Presidents and other major influencers of the 20th century including such notable sports figures as Mohammad Ali, Nelson Algren and Marlon Brando. In addition to his remarkable photography, Shay has published more than 70 books on various subjects. He has also written weekly columns for various newspapers and authored several plays. We were lucky to spend a day with Art, and I shot and edited this video as an introduction to an exhibit of his work at Hanson Dodge Creative in late June.

      Algren is the first feature length documentary that spotlights the creative legacy of one of the most underrated American writers of the twentieth century, Nelson Algren; recipient of the first National Book Award for Man With a Golden Arm (1950), Simone de Beauvoir’s “Chicago Bohemian” lover, a Beat writer before the Beats, a forerunner of the Gonzo movement. Through interviews with internationally known artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers, Algren will reestablish Algren’s huge impact on countless literary and artistic champions, while defining American urban fiction. Algren was America’s Dostoevsky and Chicago’s Dickens, filling the pages of his novels, short stories and essays with the observations of his city and the world around him. He lured his naturalistic characters out from the ramshackle tenements, grimy taverns, cluttered police departments and prison cells of the Chicago neighborhoods he visited and often called home.
