Weegee, born Arthur Fellig, was one of photography's most influential photojournalists. Known primarily for his tabloid photographs of New York crime scenes and urban grit, Weegee began his career with the photo agency Acme Newspictures in the mid 1920s. He was the first photographer to be granted a permit for a shortwave radio to listen to police and fire frequencies. Weegee worked as a freelancer in the 1930s and 1940s, armed with a police scanner in his car trunk. No one captured life and death in New York with such immediacy and wit as did Weegee. He later worked in Hollywood and experimented with abstract images in the last 20 years of his life.
