Photographs by Weegee
February 18, 2009
I love photographs by Weegee. Weegee was a photographer during the 1930’s – 1960’s. Weegee’s work would go on to inspire other photographers such as Diane Arbus. The name Weegee was given to him by a friend and derived from the popular game Ouija!. He was given this name because he would often show up at crime scenes to take photographs before the police would even arrive. Most people are familiar with Mr. Weegee’s crime scene photographs, but my favorites are of other subject matters. Check out some great ones below. I found these on Amber-Online.
