“Edward Steichen, dean of American photographers, once said of Weegee that he made the only significant contribution to the art of photography that has been made in this century… His ingenious use of the camera in creating photographic essays has resulted in his work being hung in New York’s Museum of Modern Art and others in the U.S. and Europe. Weegee has lectured throughout the U.S., Europe and in the U.S.S.R. He is the original author of “Naked City,” and has been commissioned as photographic adviser in the making of many films, his latest being “Dr. Strangelove, Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Bomb.” Weegee’s latest effort, shown on these pages, is a camera rendering of the nude female form in an interpretive conception of surrealism captured by the photographic lens of a master.”
