About this title


Weegee the famous, as he liked to be called, was a major influence in the field of newspaper photography. Persistent and aggressive behind the camera, he always made sure that he was at the forefront of breaking news. As a photographer he went to the heart of ugly situations to illustrate the often gruesome realities of life in the city. Weegee's images scream at their audience. An assault to the eyes was created through his use of the flash's severe light; the harsh contrasts and deep shadows that resulted gave his images an extra jolt. Concerned more with the impact of his images than with the artistry, Weegee favored a tone of sarcasm and irony with a touch of compassion in his work. This book presents more than 40 images spanning photojournalist Weegee's career, along with a chronology, exhibition history and selected bibliography.

About the Author:

Born in Austria in 1899, Arthur H. Fellig, later known as Weegee, became involved in photography shortly after emigrating to the United States with his family in 1910. Weegee gradually established himself as a prolific news photographer and freelanced for many New York newspapers. He also had a brief stint in Hollywood as a technical advisor for several film productions and as an actor.

Weegee's work has been shown worldwide in exhibitions including Photokina '62 in Cologne, West Germany, and at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948 and 1974. In his latter years, he traveled extensively as a lecturer and consultant. Weegee died in New York in 1968.
