Arthur Fellig was born in 1899 in Austria, emigrating with his family
to Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 1909.
By the late 1940s Weegee
had emerged as a national celebrity and
enjoyed that status.
His spirit and interests changed. He explored
distortion lenses, the
polaroid process, and produced photo-caricatures
of famous people,
going on to win occasional, highly paid assignments,
and travelling
widely until his death in New York in 1968.
