From the publisher: "A landmark paperback on the most celebrated news photographer of the century, Weegee's World features the work of this archetypal hard-bitten tabloid photographer, who as also a modern master of the art of photography. Born Usher Felling (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 1930s to the 1960s -- and captures bygone New York at its most raucous, dangerous, and outrageous."
