“Underneath it Weegee is a sensitive, responsive artist, endlessly curious about the tiny details of life and death and crime and four-alarm fires; the details that make great art and good captions.”
“… My freelance photography business has taken a nose dive… the only time I go to Brooklyn is when I am forced to go there on business.” – Weegee
(Wee could be wrong, but wee think that this letter to Psychic Photographer Weegee c/o The Police Dept. was written in 1943, almost exactly a year before it was printed…)
And a great drawing by A.R.!
