Beschreibung- Weegee (1899-1968) was the supreme news photographer who captured car crashes, gangland murders and tenement infernos of 1930s and 1940s New York- Born Arthur Fellig, he borrowed his name from the ouija board to advertise his uncanny ability for turning up on the scene of the crime before the police- Revered for elevating the sordid side of human life to high art, he is also credited with ushering in the age of tabloid culture- His images both shock and entertain and together amount to an extraordinary portrait of the dark side of New York City
