Arthur "Weegee" Fellig. NY photojournalist who went after the visceral flicks.

Don't know much more off the top of my head. Google that name and you should find a bio and some flicks, I would guess.

he was the first photojournalist to have a police radio installed in his car. he got to scenes before police did.

there was an excellent exhibit here in nyc at the international center of photography of his trick photography. it ended last month, unfortunately. they do however have some nice weegee stuff in their permanent collection which anyone in new york should check out, as well as some nice photos by Capa.

 

I <3 photographs.

i don't really love this guy, although i find him very interesting. i have a few articles on him. he was a character.

the tonal qualities of his photos are amazing. but... i don't know. it just doesn't make me want to pee everywhere.
