Features excellent reproductions of some 250 photographs produced chiefly in the 1930s and 40s by celebrated American photojournalist Weegee (Arthur Fellig, 1899-1968), the selection including many of the stark, tabloid-style images of crime scenes, accident victims and night life in New York City for which the artist is best known. An essay tracing Weegee's independent career is supplemented by an examination of his work in the context of American and European traditions of urban documentary photography and by a discussion of the aesthetic similarities between Weegee's dramatic depictions of city life and the Hollywood film noir.
