Weegee — American Photographer born on June 12, 1899, died on December 26, 1968

Weegee was the pseudonym of Arthur Fellig, a photographer and photojournalist, known for his stark black and white street photography. Weegee worked in Manhattan, New York City's Lower East Side as a press photographer during the 1930s and '40s, and he developed his signature style by following the city's emergency services and documenting their activity. Much of his work depicted unflinchingly realistic scenes of urban life, crime, injury and death. Weegee published photographic books and also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick...

People are so wonderful that a photographer has only to wait for that breathless moment to capture what he wants on film.
This is unexposed film of Greenwich Village because nothing ever happens there.
