Photographs by Weegee; essays by Anthony W. Lee and Richard Meyer. 144 pages; b&w reproductions throughout; 6 x 8 inches. Two essays on Weegee's (Arthur Fellig) photography and his 1945 book, Naked City, and their effect of journalistic practices. One looks at Weegee's pictures before and after they were collected and assesses how his practice of tabloid photography was inseparable from his own lowbrow appeal. The other essay examines the leftist journalism world in 1930s and '40s New York and shows how this world helped shape the photographer's vision. The third volume in a series entitled: Defining Moments in American Photography.
