...as complete a record of the world's most notorious news photographer as we are ever likely to need.... Gangland rubouts, suicides and accident victims were his specialty, but he also excelled at capturing the expressions of onlookers as they gazed on the grisly scenes.

Book Description 
  
" A landmark paperback on the most celebrated news photographer of this century, Weegee's World features the work of this archetypal hard-bitten tabloid photographer, who was also a modern master of the art of photography. Born Usher Fellig (1899-1968), Weegee earned his name and reputation by always appearing first at major crime scenes, as if a Ouija board had led him to the spot. This major retrospective showcases the best of Weegee's jolting work from the 1930's to the 1960's-and captures bygone New York at its most raucous, dangerous, and outrageous. Here are Weegee's grisly murders, shocking accidents, gawking crowds, and other signature crime-and-disaster shots, along with his equally arresting human-interest and high-society images. Weegee's World contains more than 250 images, reproduced in duotone and chosen by Miles Barth, past curator at the International Center of Photography. Interpretive essays, an annotated chronology, a bibliography, a filmography, and a list of exhibitions complete this comprehensive volume." --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
