For an intense decade between 1935 and 1946, Weegee was one of the most relentlessly inventive figures in American photography. His dramatic and often lurid photographs of New York crimes and news events set the standard for what has become known as tabloid journalism. Utilizing other distribution venues, Weegee also wrote extensively (including his autobiographical Naked City, published in 1946) and organized his own exhibitions at the Photo League.
