WEEGEE [Arthur Fellig.] An Autobiography, New York: Ziff-Davis, 1964. Octavo, first edition, pp. 159, black cloth boards with gilt-stamped lettering on spine, gilt-stamped Weegee the Famous photo credits on upper panel, numerous halftone photo plates. Weegee was probably the best tabloid news photographer ever, scooping the competition by sleeping in his street clothes with police and fire radios in the bedroom and a makeshift darkroom and office in his car trunk. "Weegee's direct-frontal, synchronized flash assault produced unrefined and titillating images that broke through society's veneer, presenting a raw, spontaneous, pessimistic, and primeval view of humanity. ... Removed from its journalistic bonds, Weegee's work can transcend its news time and take on the distressingly symbolic form of a morality tale by a fabulist whose aggressiveness and antagonism towards his subjects gives his caricatures piercing believability" says Robert Hirsch in "Seizing the Light," pp. 329-330. Condition of this book: Fine, dust jacket chipped at spine ends with a short tear in lower rear panel.
