Weegee was the archetypal hard-boiled tabloid photographer. From the 1930s to the 1960s his images of murder, mayhem and the seamy underside of New York set a new standard for immediacy and wit and influenced a generation of imitators. Working with Speed Graphic and an on-camera flash, he shot with a stark, punchy, in-your-face style, often capturing his subjects in a startling blast of light.
This major retrospective showcasing the best of his work is available for the first time in paperback.
