Life is more mystery than misery

(or at least, that's what I like to think)

Weegee: Murder Is My Business

The interesting and sometimes row work of the tabloid crime photographer Weegee is currently the subject of two new exhibitions.
Although the photographer, whose name was Arthur Fellig didn’t only work on criminal subjects, dead criminals, fires, gruesome accidents and other catastrophes were his initial subjects. The International Center of Photography zeroes in on these early works, mixing in a raft of contextualizing materials, including photographs by others in the exhibition “Weegee: Murder is my business”. For more info, here you have an excellent article about it by Roberta Smith at the New York Times.
If you look for a more eclectic theme you will also enjoy “Weegee: Naked City” at the Steven Kasher Gallery until Feb. 25, where you will also find fabulous work from the photographer.

*”Weegee: Murder Is My Business” runs through Sept. 2 at the International Center of Photography, 1133 Avenue of the Americas, at 43rd Street; (212) 857-0000,
“Weegee: Naked City” continues through at the Steven Kasher Gallery, 521 West 23rd Street, Chelsea; (212) 966 -3978,
