Photographs by Weegee.
Steidl ICP, 2012. 248 pp., 266 illustrations, 6¾x9¾".
In 1946, a year after the runaway success of Naked City, Weegee published his affectionate but sharp appraisal of the citizens of New York. Weegee’s People presents a true cross-section of New Yorkers, from the photographer’s cherished street people to the rich dames who frequented the Metropolitan Opera. This facsimile is a painstaking recreation of the original book, and follows the success of other facsimiles printed by Steidl including Moi¨ Ver’s Paris (2003) and Jakob Tuggener’s Fabrik (2003).
