Product description

Arthur Fellig (1899–1968) has gone down in history as “Weegee”. His pseudonym represents the perhaps most well-known press photographer, who slept, fully clothed, next to his radio; who followed the nightly New York police and fire department reports and almost obsessively documented the murders, suicides, accidents and fires in the city. With his own, direct technique – speed graphic camera and frontal flash – he placed the nightly scenes in a harsh light, documenting them with an almost brutal objectivity.

Weegee was also, however, a regular visitor to workers' bars, nightclubs, restaurants and theatres of Broadway, carefully observing social and cultural situationsand events. His famous book, Naked City, from 1945 demonstrates that: with his choice of subjects and his simple photography, he was the most important chronicler of the city of New York.
