I go to a lot of museums and i usually walk past the photography section giving the pieces a quick glance just to make sure i'm not walking past something by Weegee. This is hands down my favorite photographer. The Tom Waits of Photography, Weegee!
This is a great collection of photos from New York in all its grimy glory during the 30s-50s. It's a slice of life sort of thing, from crime scenes to choir recitals. All in all a compelling look at the history of The Big Apple.
Mathew Carruthers
Captivating and unsettling, brilliant in simplicity, the work of Weegee the Famous is like no other, bringing to light the unseen sights of New York in an era of violence.
Gritty post-war urban noir meets Diane Arbus. I like the Circus pics and the infrared Theater shots most of all.
Three words: real life noir.
