Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

Weegee, one of the most distinguished American reporters, was born Arthur Fellig in Złoczów (Galicia, Austria-Hungary). When he was ten his family moved to the States.

 

He is best known as a candid news photographer whose stark black-and-white shots documented street life in New York City. Weegee's photos of crime scenes, car-wreck victims in pools of their own blood, overcrowded urban beaches and various grotesques are still shocking, though some turned out to have been staged.

He really was at the top of his game while shooting tragedy. I'm surprised to see so many of his pieces collected in such perfect condition. All of the contrast is preserved and none of the photos look aged at all.

Great find!
