Published to coincide with an exhibit at the International Center of Photography in New York, 1997. Essays by Miles Barth, Alain Bergala and Ellen Handy. Weegee was the archetypal hard-boiled tabloid photographer. From the 1930s to the 1960s his images of murder, mayhem and the seamy inderside of New York set a new standard for immediacy and wit - and influenced a generation of of imitators. Working with a Speed Graphic and an on-camera flash, he shot in a stark, punchy, in-your-face style, often capturing his subjects in a startling blast of light. This retrospective showcases his jolting work - and captures bygone New York at its most raucous, dangerous and outrageous.
