Weegee: Naked City

Weegee Weegee... Girl Wearing Hat Laughing in Movie Theater (ca. 1945, vintage gelatin silver print). From the exhibition Weegee: Naked City at Steven Kasher Gallery. "...The exhibition takes its cues from the title of Weegee's first book, Naked City, which became a bestseller, made Weegee famous, and transformed him from a journalist into an artist. It was a title with many implications. The city and its citizens exposed. The bare truth. A city that fills you with hungers, lusts, passions. A city ready to frolic. A city that makes you think bad thoughts." Also... Weegee: Murder Is My Business at the ICP and Naked Hollywood: Weegee In Los Angeles at MOCA.
