Weegee and Naked City


WEEGEE. Lee, Anthony W. and Richard Meyer

Pap. Berkeley, 2008

Book ID: 76781

Arthur Fellig, better known as Weegee, and his 1945 photography book, Naked City - with its lurid tabloid - style images of Manhattan crime, crowds, and boisterous nightlife - changed prevailing journalistic practices almost overnight. In this volume, two art historians, Anthony W. Lee and Richard Meyer, bring markedly different outlooks on photography and modernism to their discussions of Weegee and his book.
