Favorite Artists: Weegee

Filed under: Art History, Favorite Artists, Photography — norulesnoshame @ 15:46

Apparently, the reason Weegee was called Weegee was because he arrived at the scene of accidents and deaths so quickly, he was given the nickname of the Ouija board (or colloquially Weegee). Thanks, Wikipedia. I like the starkness of the flash, the grotesque nature of the photos, and the irreverence for empathy. It’s just so strangely objective, unlike the newspaper photos we get to see these days.
