Arthur Fellig, better known under his professional pseudonym Weege was an American photographer who was renowned for his gritty B&W shots of crime scenes and urban subjects against the landscape of 1930’s-1940’s New York City. It was Weegee’s distinct use of distortion techniques that were key to his unique and impactful style. By using wide-angle lenses, flash photography and unusual angles, he was able to craft surreal and somewhat disturbing perspectives that challenged the viewer’s expectations and pushed the boundaries of photography. Today, Weegee’s works continue to be shown at galleries and museums across the world as his signature imagery inspires, disturbs and challenges.
