Get Thee to the ICP to See Unknown Weegee

Hard as it may be to believe, there actually are some Weegee photographs that have rarely, if ever, been exhibited or included in printed collections of his photographs.

The International Center of Photography in NYC, which has a collection of more than 18,000 Weegee photographs, is mounting a show through August 27 called "Unknown Weegee." The show will showcase 95 of his photographs - many on view for the first time. ICP has some images here.

The New York Times has an article with a nice slide show here.

Get yourself down to the ICP for the show. It's your chance to see the work of the man who practically invented photojournalism and who made the Speed Graphic famous.
