Gelatin silver print
Artist stamp, in ink, au verso
Printed circa 1950
Born Arthur Felig, the name WEEGEE has become synonymous with cigar chomping, police radio chasing photojournalism, a methodology he was a proponent of.
This vintage photograph is a single-weight ferrotyped gelatin silver print, in very good condition, purchased from A Gallery for Fine Photography in New Orleans. It is a crisp image, with great contrast and bears his ‘WEEGEE THE FAMOUS’ studio stamp on the reverse.
