Born in Austria in 1899, Arthur Felling -alias Weegee- moved to New York at the age of ten and quickly embraced his adopted city. A man of many accupations, he worked as a candy peddler, busboy, violinist (for silent movies), and darkroom technician before he went out on his own to become the greatest crime photographer of all time. The only civilian permitted to have a police radio in his car, Weegee chased after crime in one New York neighborhood after another, then developed his film in a darkroom installed in the trunk of his Chevrolet. This volume includes the best of his stark and wrenching photographs of accident victims, murderers, fallen gangsters, and survivors of fires as well as his intimate, affectionate shots of New Yorkers out on the town, looking for a good time.
The Pantheon Photo Library, conceived and printed by the National Center of Photography in Paris, brings together the best work of classic and contemporary photographers in affordable guides produced to the highest standards. The series was the recipient of the International Center of Photography's first annual publication award for distinguished books on photography.
