Nihil sine magno labore (nothing without great labor) was one of the few things legendary photographer Art Shay learned in his year at Brooklyn College before service as a much-decorated lead navigator in World War II. Though he was unsure of the significance of the Latin phrase at the time, its impact surely was felt throughout Shay's career as a photographer for LIFE, Time, and Fortune magazines, leading to his work in a variety of labor situations. Be they images of linemen or those on the assembly line, his affinity for capturing work and the worked has produced an unparalleled catalogue of images of human industry in its many forms. This special exhibition features a selection of dozens of Shay's finest scenes of work, labor and pictures "made of fellow and sister laborers."
