"If it bleeds, it leads" -- the cynical battle cry of today's tabloids -- might easily have been the motto of Arthur Fellig, the freelance photojournalist better known as Weegee, who cruised the streets of 1940s New York in the wee hours of the morning in search of the sensational. His pictures of children sleeping on fire escapes, blood-splattered corpses on sidewalks and amorous couples on the beach -- as seen in this reprint of his first book -- reveal that Weegee, unlike his latter day counterparts, had heart and soul. He also had a cockeyed sense of humor, as evidenced by his captions and camera tips.  
  
 
  
About the Author 
  
Weegee (1900-1968), born Arthur Fellig, is credited with ushering in the age of tabloid culture and revered for elevating the sordid side of human life to the level of high art. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
The ultimate collection of Weegee's shocking tabloid photographs, from the ultimate tabloid city.  
  
 
  
For Naked City, his first collection, Weegee cruised the streets of 1940s New York in the wee hours in search of the sensational. Lewd, louche, licentious but always brimming with life (except when brimming with death), Weegee's photographs have endured decades of modern art criticism and are again enjoying a much-deserved cult revival. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
