Event Details

Art historian and educator Mallory Mortillaro will present an ARTalk about Ukrainian-born photographer Weegee, whose given name was Arthurs Fellig. Weegee captured some of the grittiest scenes of New York City in the middle of the 20th century. Much of Weegee’s work comes from his years trailing the city’s emergency service teams and documenting crime scenes, fires and day-to-day life. Weegee’s instinct to turn the camera away from the main attraction and onto the gathering crowds resulted in some of the most visceral images of the day. This lecture explores the mythology behind the photographer and how he went on to be one of New York City’s most important artists.
