“Weegee: World’s Greatest Photographer”


(“Weegee,” Howard Greenberg Gallery, March 21, 2017)

Excellent exhibition: “Weegee” at the Howard Greenberg Gallery, February 16 – April 1, 2017.

Bunch of classic images, some lesser-known images, and a few images we were not familiar with… One photo was made in Jersey City. A pair of photos of a woman and her periscope were made in Hollywood, ca. 1950… Almost entirely the prints were on the larger side, 11×14″-ish paper. (Prices were approx. $3,500-$12,000. Perhaps, the smaller the photo, the smaller the price. If an 11×14″ photo sold for $10,000, then that would be about $65/square inch. Or, a little less than $10,000/square foot.) Some prints were annotated, there was at least one Culver stamp, and several Acme Newspictures stamps…
