Weegee (1899-1968), [Exposition inteRnatiOnale du Surréalisme, or EROS, Paris], December 1959 – February 1960, (Screenshot)

To celebrate the 91st birthday of Jasper Johns (born May 15, 1930)… a pair of screenshots… “à la galerie Daniel Cordier…” Weegee à Paris…

Perhaps this exhibition introduced and/or exposed Weegee to art and artists that influenced his photographic practice… It’s not impossible that Weegee’s presence at this exhibition was influential in his “distorted”-in-a-darkroom (human sculpture, etc.) photographs… (see: food for thought)…
Fellig the Zellig hobnobbing with the heady gourmands and leggy crustaceans; exquisite corpses… Weegee à Paris…
