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 forLIFE, Time, and Fortune magazines, leading to his work in a variety of labor situations.
